During the English Civil War in the 1640s a third sort, "greater than the others both in fortune and number" came together in making demands for a peace between the two warring parties, Royalist and Parliamentarian alike. This third sort went under the name of 'Clubmen'.
Over the time leading up to the performance I will be posting notes/short, worded pieces giving a brief description of those involved in the 1645 forming of associations (Clubmen) and events/places they found themselves at in a "war most horrid". This will continue until the event/ a work in progress.
