Mosley Must Fall
Drama of the Week
Friday, 19 November
It's 1936, and as political unrest sweeps across Europe, the spectre of fascism is looming over the East End.
One Irish family, living in Whitechapel, finds itself divided as Oswald Mosley and his fascist followers prepare to march through the heart of East London. When the march descends on Cable Street, an area highly populated by the Jewish and Irish working class, loyalties are tested as two brothers fight to make their mark in a historic battle.
