WIN TICKETS TO THE RAGGED TROUSERED PHILANTHROPISTS
A new powerful two-handed version of the classic book by Robert Tressell is coming to Edinburgh’s Fringe. Townsend Productions and Unite Scotland have joined forces to produce a gem of Edwardian humorous theatre with songs and music of the time.
This hugely successful production tells the story of a group of painter-decorators who are joined by artist Owen, whose spirited attacks on the dishonesty of Capitalism, along with his socialist vision, highlight exploitation in the workplace and inequality in society. Relevant still, this tale is told with vigour and passion by the two actors, Neil Gore and Fine Time Fontayne.
‘Witty, Fast-Paced, Hard-Hitting’ - Morning Star ‘First Class Entertainment’ - Whatsonstage.
