Shattersongs (1988)

Mile End Road
Shattersongs Flyer (1)

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.
