Remember, remember the fifth of November;
Gunpowder, treason and plot.
I see no reason why gunpowder treason
Should ever be forgot.
But who does remember? We remember the rhyme and we remember the name of Guy
Fawkes, but beyond that, not much. The names of Robert Catesby and Henry Garnet
were more famously associated with the plot at the time, but today, they are
largely forgotten by all but a few historians.
has always been an ideal medium for recounting history, from Shakespeare to
modern TV dramas. Telling history through musical theatre is rarer, but can
be hugely successful. Remember! Remember! is a story of passion and adventure,
in which the events of November the fifth itself play only a small, if vital,
part. Why did the plotters come to the terrible decision to blow up Parliament?
How did Guy Fawkes become involved? What happened to the conspirators after
their plot had failed?
Remember! gives us the answers to so many questions, in a way that is entertaining
to all; young and old; in England and around the world. In the present day, when terrorism once again is at the forefront
of our minds, the show is more in demand than ever.
We hope you enjoy this website and the CD of the show, and we look forward
to having you in the audience of Remember! Remember! in the near future.
