Townsend Productions; The Ragged Trousered Philanthropist

Townsend Theatre Productions are back by popular demand with their latest show, The Ragged Trousered Philanthropist.

Actor Neil Gore brings this witty, humorous and absorbing classic book to life in his one-man Magic Lantern show. Based on the famous book by Robert Tressell, it features political conjuring, music and songs echoing life in the building trades of Edwardian England.

Townsend Theatre Productions have proved a huge hit with audiences in the past, with two sell out shows, including Daredevil Rides to Jarama and We are the Lions Mr Manager.
