The Mob Reformers

By Anon. In a version by Omar El-Khairy. Devised with the Lyric Ensemble
19 ‐ 29 Jun 2019
Running time
80 minutes
Lyric Studio

A radical re-imagining of an infamous 1381 London stabbing that would go on to change the course of British history.

“On the morning of 14th June 1381, the rebels pushed west along the Thames, burning the houses of the officials around Westminster and opening the Westminster jail.”

You are invited on a journey to the year 1381 in a brand new production from the Lyric Ensemble.

Join us as we take a trip to the smallest county in the UK, the City of London. Explore what happened when 600 years ago, a group of rebels began to revolt against the king…

The city is out for revenge. We won’t give up the fight.

The Lyric Ensemble is a group of 15 actors working and training two nights a week over nine months with Holly Race Roughan, the Lyric’s Director of Young People Nicholai La Barrie and the Lyric’s Artistic Associates to create this show.

Please note that due to the nature of this performance no latecomers will be admitted.

Lyric Ensemble members receive mentoring, careers advice and pastoral support from the Lyric team. To find out more about the Lyric Ensemble click here.
