Presented by Dorchester Arts.
For the first time ever this new version of the play will be presented as a single performer show, featuring writer and actor Neil Gore, and will comprise an Edwardian Magic Lantern Show, political conjuring tricks and live music and song as the audience joins the performer through the events surrounding the renovation of a large townhouse, meeting the many familiar and infamous characters from the book.
The Ragged Trousered Philanthropists is a unique document. A novel of humour and sharply observed characterisation, it is also a passionate defence of socialist ideas and one of the first truly imaginative portrayals of life written from a working-class perspective.
A strong and robust show that brings the characters, humour and inspirational ideas of this great book to life. It is needed now more than ever. You’ll leave the theatre and join the struggle!” Ken Loach, Film Director.
