EWAN MACCOLLL MANCHESTER RAMBLER
A play with songs by Matthew Knights
In 1932 Ewan MacColl, then known as Jimmy Miller was one of the hundreds of young people who took part in the Mass Trespass onto Kinder Scout in the Peak District to protest against the private ownership of the countryside. Late in life, he reminisces about his role as an artist in the social struggle and what the significance of the trespass should be to us today.
The play is currently in development in Dundee and has been supported to date by Tom McGrath Trust, Creative Scotland and Leisure & Culture Dundee
