The event has passed.

Neil Gore, presents a one-person version of the classic novel by Robert Tressell featuring projection, political conjuring tricks, live music and song. Meet the famous characters and enjoy the scenes, speeches and songs, featuring the Great Money Trick as its centrepiece.

Afterwards, there will be a Q&A looking at how themes from the play remain as relevant today as they did on the original novel’s publication in 1914.

“A strong and robust show that brings the characters, humour and inspirational ideas of this great book to life. It is needed now more than ever. You’ll leave the theatre and join the struggle!”
Ken Loach Film Director
