Evidence from the North West Daily Mail of 1931 suggests that the psychic imbalance visited upon the world during that year may have reached critical mass during April the 22nd and 23rd.
Follies Of 1931 comprises national and international reports of crime and tragedy and family histories of violent fishing disputes in Askam In Furness over the two days , indicating a thin and porous veil between the era's seedy demagogues and moral exemplars, and soundtracked by the popular music of the day.
Devised by John Hall, featuring the voices of John Murphy, Kevin Alexander, Oswald Mosley and Mahatma Ghandi.
