Actor Neil Gore presents an Edwardian Magic Show based on Robert Tressell’s classic novel The Ragged Trousered Philanthropists.

Using Magic Lantern, projected animation, political conjuring tricks, live music and song, and with the Great Money Trick as its centrepiece, follow the painters and decorators who struggle to maintain themselves and their families through hard work, poverty, and the constant fear of unemployment, whilst renovating a large town-house for the local mayor, Mayor Sweater.

Touring Dorset with Artsreach, the counties touring arts charity. Recommended 11+
