On the centenary of the Easter Rising an exhibition
exploring the life of one of its leaders, James Connolly,
will be on display here at the Library.
No Power on Earth - Living History performance
Based on the true story of Salford man, James Hudson,
this monologue tells the story of an ordinary school teacher
at the start of the First World War who finds himself at odds
with the popular mood. The story, written by Sue Reddish,
celebrates his courage to stay true to his beliefs despite
considerable pressure, and asks the audience to consider
what they would do in such a circumstance.
This was performed at both the Library and in local schools
earlier this year. The script is now available for download
from this page on our website. Although the copyright is ours,
we would be delighted if others use it and put on their own
performances; just let us know so we can help publicise it.
