The Stirrings in Sheffield on a Saturday Night

Wed 2-Sat 5 Nov 2011, 7.30pm, Sheffield University Drama Studio, Western Bank S10 2TG

This musical play has a well-respected place in our city's history. First produced in the 1960s, it tells a story based on events a century earlies. The 'Rattenings', also known as 'The Sheffield Outrages' was a struggle between The Saw Grinder's Union and non-union labour, culminating in the murder of a non-union worker. Eventually a government board of enquiry was set up to investigate the grinding trade and its working conditions.Presented by Sheffield University Drama Society. Tickets £9, concessions £7. www.suds.shef.ac.uk
