“The man of many characters”, actor Neil Gore, presents an Edwardian Magic Show using Magic Lantern and projected animation, with political conjuring tricks and live music and song, based on the classic novel The Ragged Trousered Philanthropists. In this entertaining one-man show we meet the familiar characters from the book; participate in the famous Great Money Trick; enjoy the scenes, speeches, and songs that trace “twelve months in hell” as the painters and decorators struggle to maintain themselves and families through hard work, poverty, and the constant fear of unemployment, whilst renovating a large town-house for the local mayor – Mayor Sweater. This witty, humorous, enduring and absorbing classic story is brought to life by Neil Gore using his extensive knowledge of the book and the play, having performed it in many versions over thirty-five years.
