Rehearsal Pictures and audience feedback:
It kicked off proper on Church Street last night, just like the old days November 1715 to be precise, as Preston’s Uneasy Theatre and Cardinal Newman Dance Academy joined forces to recreate the last battle fought on English soil. (from a review posted at Blog Preston)
Traditional Scottish folk songs, like the rabble rousing ‘Ye Jacobites by Name’ and energetic re-enactments of the savage fighting in streets of Preston by Cardinal Newman Dance Academy combined with live music by James Cruickshanks and superb performances from the Uneasy Theatre cast created a stirring piece of drama depicting an important moment in Preston’s history.

We a (party of four) attended Jacobite last evening and we were all blown away with your portrayal of this event in history, the actors, dancers, music, etc. all complemented each other in a totally professional production, very well done to one and all.
Hi, We went to see Jacobite last night, and we just wanted to say how much we enjoyed it. The cast, the music, the production were all excellent. We booked it on the spur of the moment, after having seen it in the LEP, we will definitely keep an eye on your website for your future productions.
Nothing makes you feel good like seeing a play that makes you proud of where you live, Jacobite was amazingly done, and was well and truly worth seeing - brilliant!
a truly wonderful evening :)
Just wanted to say thoroughly enjoyed show last night, the acting, singing, dancing and music were very moving. A credit to you all. I watched the show with 5 other family members and they all said afterwards what a fantastic show it was, my mum and myself had a tear in our eye when it finished and we could not stop talking about the show on the drive home.
well done everyone, great show

Well done to all concerned, can’t wait for the next show!!!!
In memory of all who lost their lives in the Preston Fight of November 1715
