image for Play - Contemporary item typeDare Devil Rides to Jarama at Swanland Village Halladd to shortlist

Play - Contemporary, Sat 26 Nov 2016


The drama centres on the contrasting lives of International Brigaders Clem Beckett and Christopher Caudwell. Beckett, a Lancashire blacksmith and famous star of the speedway track, and Caudwell, a renowned writer, poet and philosopher, were killed together at Jarama in February 1937, having become friends as members of the British Battalion’s machine-gun company.

The play sheds light on the political and social world of the 1930s and commemorates and celebrates the contribution and sacrifice of the volunteers. Dare Devil Rides To Jarama captures the raw passions and emotions produced by the Spanish Civil War – idealism to despair, hope to anger, determination to fear – through powerful storytelling, stirring song and poetry, and compelling movement and dance.

“A Company making a name for delivering, vivid politically committed theatre.” The Observer
