The John Arden Memorial

0 Love It
A cast of familiar faces, including Brendan Coyle and Sarah Lancashire, perform a rehearsed reading of the 1959 anti-war play Sergeant Musgrave's Dance, in honour of its author John Arden, who died in March this year. The play had its premiere at the Court and was initially poorly received; only recently has the tale of four Victorian deserters from an imperialist war overseas been hailed as a modern classic.
