Enlightening, deeply moving and gloriously funny, The Ragged Trousered Philanthropists is a story that has changed countless lives and remains as vivid and as relevant as when it was written almost a century ago.

This story of a group of working men who are joined one day by Owen, a journeyman-prophet with a vision of a just society, is a masterpiece of wit and political passion and one of the most authentic novels of English working class life ever written.

Now one of our greatest playwrights, Howard Brenton, adapts it for the stage in a new production for the Everyman. Christopher Morahan returns after the success of The Caretaker to direct a large ensemble in a vital production filled with energy, humour, passion and song.
