THE RAGGED TROUSERED PHILANTHROPISTS 

Robert Tressell’s novel about life in the building trades was first published over 100 years ago, and was barely noticed. Since then, The Ragged Trousered Philanthropists has won itself a place in literary history as the first authentic English working-class novel. 
 
In this entertaining one-man show we meet the familiar characters from the book; participate in the famous Great Money Trick; enjoy the scenes, speeches, and songs that trace twelve months of hard work, poverty, and the constant fear of unemployment, whilst renovating a large town-house for the local mayor - Mayor Sweater.

This witty, humorous, enduring classic story is brought to life by Neil Gore with projected animation, political conjuring tricks, live music and song.
