Gangs of Victorian Liverpool


 


THE HIGH RIP! THE HOUSEBREAKERS! THE LEMON ST GANG! THE CORNERMEN!

With their heavy hobnailed boots, knives and sharpened belt buckles, these gangs held Victorian Liverpool in a fist of fear!

                                                                                                                                                                                                         


CRIMINALITY...JUSTICE...WRONG AND RETRIBUTION....

In conjunction with Liverpool's Culture Company Heritage Team, Petite Ullaloom created a performance led workshop for secondary school children in the cells and courtroom of St George's Hall. The piece gave an overview of life for the poor in Victorian Liverpool, gave information about the many gangs which ruled the slums and delved into the social, economic factors that led many to a life of crime as a gang member. Participants were encouraged to consider whether extreme poverty and deprivation could ever be held as valid justifications for acts of criminiality and brutality.

The workshop enacted the notorious murder of Richard Morgan (1874) and  the subsequent trail of the three men who kicked his broken body 40 ft down Tithebarn St.  Two of the accused were hanged by the neck, the third sentenced to hard labour. The interactive performance ended with a debate about capital punishment.
