Serjeant Musgrave's Dance archiveWinter. Somewhere between 1860 and 1880. A serjeant and three soldiers arrive in a strike-torn Northern mining town. They appear to be seeking recruits for the Queen's regiment. They are in fact deserters led by a man obsessed with awakening his countrymen to the futility and horror of war. Described by Arden as an 'un-historical parable', Serjeant Musgrave's Dance is a realistic drama written in verse and prose. The play is enriched with traditional Scottish, English and Irish folk-song airs. "The modern English theatre has had its poets and it has had its dramatists, but in John Arden it has acquired its first dramatic poet since - well, lets be rash - the days of Shakespeare" The Sunday Times
Performers Billy Carter, Sam Cox, David Hollet, Dermot Kerrigan, Tobias Menzies, Maxine Peake, Fred Pearson, Edward Peel, Paul Rainbow, John Stahl, Colin Tarrant, Simon Walter.
