About this event

Mike Leigh orchestrates a superb ensemble cast, including Maxine Peake and Rory Kinnear, in this rousing, sweeping tale of a defining moment in British democracy: the infamous Peterloo Massacre of 1819.

Returning from the battle of Waterloo, shell-shocked soldiers find their hometowns ravaged by the gentry. A peaceful protest march is arranged, where radical orator Henry Hunt (Kinnear) will speak, but as the day approaches the situation becomes dangerously volatile. Weaving class consciousness, family dynamics, hypocrisy, humanism and the stories of everyday people into a socialist tapestry, Leigh depicts an historic act of state brutality with huge contemporary relevance.

“Leigh lets rip with the great and terrible scene of Peterloo: with all its terror, panic and strange, nauseous excitement.”
