A new folk opera telling the true story of women chainmakers involved in the 'home-working sweated industries', working in the backyards of their homes.

The role of trade unionist and strike leader Mary is performed by Scottish folk singer Bryony Purdue.Tickets from Lantern Theatre at Ticketsource
