Liverpool - Friday 28th - Saturday 29th April 2017
Following their sell-out performances of the ragged trousered philanthropists last year, North West based theatre group Costal productions are very kindly going to perform the play as part of the Bob Tressell festival.
Their take on the adaptation written by Tom McLennan earned the gang rave reviews.
"RTP StHelens is as inspirational as it is relevant. Well done to a superb team of activists, artistes and actors."
Conor McGinn MP for St Helens North
"The play was great and politically entertaining.
I loved the aggressive slant, the increase of open politics and the music was very good."
