Dave Marson, a Hull docker, wrote Fall in and Follow Me about the East End Children’s Strike of 1911 and other children’s strikes which took place that year in Hull, Manchester and Liverpool. It was based on historical facts but attempted to go beyond them to construct the world of the time for the audience. The children in the play were striking over the use of corporal punishment in their schools, following the example of some of their parents who were striking dockers of the time. The play was set in and around Ben Jonson Primary School and included a cast of six local boys.
