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 as they renovate 'The Cave', a three-storey town house, for Mayor Sweater.
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 Neil Gore and Rodney Matthew, two hugely talented and experienced performers, using comedy routines and entertaining songs of the Music Hall, with a few surprises along the way!
