Benson shares his fascination with the infamous plot to murder Lord Liverpool's entire cabinet and the grisly aftermath on the gallows at Newgate. Drawing on verbatim accounts, hear how outrage at the 1819 Peterloo Massacre led five men into a deadly trap. Gruesome and disturbing at times, the tale has uncanny resonance today, as Benson explores, in this highly original entertainment.
