The Ragged Trousered Philanthropist: Townsend Productions
"This hilarious, fast-paced and powerful adaptation of Robert Tressell's classic book shares with its audience a year in the life of a group of painters and decorators as they renovate 'The Cave', a three-storey town house, for Mayor Sweater. It traces their hardships and struggles for survival in a complacent and stagnating Edwardian England. These workers are the 'philanthropists' who throw themselves into back-breaking work for poverty wages in order to generate profit for their masters."

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.
