The Ragged Trousered Philanthropist

Production Company: Townsend Theatre Productions
Venue: The Corn Hall

‘The man of many characters’, actor Neil Gore, presents an Edwardian magic show with magic lantern and projected animation; political conjuring tricks, live music and song, as we meet the famous characters from Robert Tressell’s book that follows the events that surround the painters and decorators who are charged with the renovation of a large town house for local Mayor Sweater. 

This entertaining one-man show includes scenes, speeches, audience participation and songs from the classic book, featuring the Great Money Trick as its centrepiece.
