This adaptation of Robert Tressell's famous novel is a hilarious fast-paced show that shares with its audience a year in the life of a group of painters and decorators, as they renovate a three-storey town house for Mayor Sweater. It traces their struggle 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.

This vibrant, lively, must-not-miss story is brought to life using live music, mayhem and mirth.
