with love& anger

With Love & Anger Writer Sara Chernaik | Actor Sienna Da Silva-Simpson | Director Jonny Morton A woman remembers the songs and stories and love from her childhood that gave her a reason to keep fighting for freedom and for a better world.

He filled my head with songs and stories of dreams and hope and what was and will be, sang me to sleep with the songs that ground me when I forget where I am. My father held my hand as we marched for peace, lifted me high on his shoulders when it was my turn to ride above the crowd of marching feet and legs, to look out over the sea of banners, of colour, of hope for change; and always I felt my father’s hand in mine, his songs filling the world with love. With Love and Anger we can change the World.’
