By Robert Tressell Adapted by Stephen Lowe Directed by Louise Townsend Suitable for all Post Show Discussion with Stephen Lowe Thursday 8 March 10:15pm Admission Free This hilarious, fast-paced, musical comedy follows a group of painters and decorators struggling for survival in a stagnating Edwardian England. As they renovate a three-storey town house for Mayor Sweater, the philanthropists throw themselves into back-breaking work for poverty wages. This new 2-hander version of Stephen Lowe’s original adapatation of Robert Tressell’s classic book brings this vibrant story brilliantly to life. "Sheer theatrical magic" Financial Times
