Ragged Trousered Philanthropists

This hilarious, fast-paced adaptation of Robert Tressell’s classic book shares with its audience a year in the life of a group of painters and decorators. It traces their hardships and struggles for survival in a complacent and stagnating Edwardian England. These workers are the ‘philanthropists’ who throw themselves into back-breaking work for poverty wages in order to generate profit for their masters.

An enduring and absorbing classic story is brought to life by two hugely talented and experienced performers, using comedy routines and entertaining songs of the Music Hall, with a few surprises along the way! Followed by short Q & A by Stephen Lowe, playwright.
