Mike Leigh’s latest film is an epic portrayal of the events surrounding the infamous 1819 Peterloo Massacre – where a peaceful pro-democracy rally at St Peter’s Field in Manchester turned into one of the bloodiest and most notorious episodes in British history. The massacre saw British government forces charge into a crowd of over 60,000 that had gathered to demand political reform and protest against rising levels of poverty.
Many protestors were killed and hundreds more injured, sparking a nationwide outcry but also further government suppression. The Peterloo Massacre was a defining moment in British democracy which also played a significant role in the founding of The Guardian newspaper.

Celebrating the 40th anniversary of Stephen Sondheim and Hugh Wheeler’s ground-breaking Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street, the musical thriller comes to Sydney and Melbourne this June – transporting audiences into the atmospheric underbelly of 19th century London.
The story centres on an unjustly exiled barber who returns to London seeking vengeance against the lecherous judge who framed him and ravaged his young wife. The road to revenge leads to Mrs Lovett – the proprietor of a failing pie shop, above which, he opens a new barber shop. Desperate times lead Sweeney Todd to plot diabolical schemes against those who have wronged him.
Sweeney Todd will be played by quintessential leading man Anthony and the incomparable Gina Riley plays the tragi-comic role of pie-maker Mrs. Lovett. With soaring arias of vengeance and yearning, the darkly-comic Sweeney Todd combines the vocal power and sweep of opera with the aching humanity of musical theatre.
