  1. An updated version of a musical fusion of the lives of ordinary people,the radicalism and hopes for the future at a time of national and local crisis.Any resemblance to the present state of affairs in ‘this blessed plot’is purely coincidental.Sung along to with gusto to ‘Dashing Away With A Smoothing Iron”The Diggers Song”How Many Flowers Grow Etc’Only grumble it wasn’t long enough.With thanks to Pass the Porter Theatre- the Old Hawle In The Poandes PubLic House and the audience who raised £76 for the Friends Of Sheffield Castle.
