RECEIVED as one of the greatest theatre events to be seen in London in 2016, Dare Devil Rides to Jarama, a true tale of the defence of democracy against fascism at the start of the Spanish Civil War, comes to Cadeleigh Parish Hall for one night only on Sunday, February 5.
Commissioned by The International Brigades Memorial Trust,Dare Devil Rides To Jarama is a new play by Neil Gore that tells the story of the British and Irish volunteers at the beginning of the brutal Civil War in Spain, and captures the raw passions and emotions of idealism and despair, hope and anger, determination and fear.
Clem “Dare Devil” Beckett, the rugged Speedway star, and Caudwell, literary critic, poet and aeronautical expert, were considered unlikely friends; but a common cause brought them together and they died at their machine gun post covering their battalion’s retreat at the Battle of Jarama in February 1937.
This performance of powerful storytelling, stirring songs, poetry and puppetry starts at 7.30pm.

The evening is organised by Villages in Action.
