A performance by Journeymen Theatre as part of Quaker Week:
And the Beat Goes On…….
This play looks at the various ways over the past 300 years that Quaker men and women have used nonviolent direct action to challenge injustice and inequality, to oppose war, and to speak truth to power. The play explores how people including the very early abolitionists, the first known woman hunger striker, a Palestinian Quaker peace activist, and the Trident Ploughshares movement made waves and rocked the establishment boat in their different ways.
Come and be inspired! – and invite friends who might be interested along too, to learn more about Quakers and their history.
Age range: 16 +
Duration: Approximately 70 minutes. Light refereshments available afterwards.
