Shattersongs was a musical play based on the Battle of Cable Street and was a community theatre production. It used cabaret-style songs, comedy and semi-surreal imagery to represent not just the Battle but contemporary anti-fascist activity. A highlight of the production was that the company managed to acquire a real lorry to represent the one turned over for use as a barricade in 1936.
Local resident and theatre artist, Alan Gilbey talks about Shattersongs, a promenade community production set in the East End. Interviewed by Toni Tsaera.
