The Ragged Trousered Philanthropists: Townsend Productions
A new two handed version of Stephen Lowe's play, based on Tressell's classic book.
The story follows a group of decorators and their struggle for survival as they live on poverty wages whilst generating huge profits for their masters. They are joined by Owen, an artist and visionary, who attempts to rouse his fellow
workers from their political complacency.
Forever relevant and provoking, this gem of period humorous theatre is first class irreverent entertainment.

Townsend Productions - led by producer and director Louise Townsend - is a small collaboration of artists that have come together to create live theatre of the highest possible artistic standard for audiences in theatre venues that is genuinely accessible and relevant, innovative, imaginative, challenging and that entertains with integrity and humour.
Their aim is to present touring theatre to audiences who are not within easy reach of theatre centres or to those who are not normally theatregoers in non-theatre venues, such as village halls, community centres, youth clubs, schools, working men's clubs, Trades Union conferences and galas.
They have also formed links with Trades Unions and artistic and educational organisations that represent the disadvantaged in society to produce work that explores themes and issues of special interest to those who feel they are disadvantaged, that still remains accessible to a wider audience.
