Tressell by David Harker


Original Title: Tressell

"Tressell: The Real Story of 'The Ragged Trousered Philanthropists' describes the author's life, puts the book in its historical context and traces its success over the past ninety-odd years. It shows that The Ragged Trousered Philanthropists is about socialist values and their continued relevance at a time when we are being told that capitalism is here for ever; that greed is good; that war, famine, poverty, racism and oppression are natural, normal and permanent features of life on Planet Earth. Crucially, Tressell's passionate, compassionate denunciation of the capitalist 'system' is about hope, so little wonder The Ragged Trousered Philanthropists is selling very well indeed in these anti-capitalist days."--BOOK JACKET.

The Ragged Trousered Philanthropists by Robert Tressall


Original Title: The Ragged Trousered Philanthropists

With grim humour and pitiless realism the working man has revealed the lives and hearts of his mates, their opinion of their betters, their political views, their attitude towards Socialism. Through the busy din of the hammer and the scraping knife, the clang of the pail, the swish of the white wash, the yell of the foreman, comes the talk of the men, their yokes and curses, their hopes and terrors, the whimpering of their old people, the cry of their children.

The Ragged Trousered Philanthropists by Howard Brenton


Original Title: The Ragged Trousered Philanthropists

Passionate, highly entertaining and gloriously funny - Robert Tressell’s classic pre-First World War account of the working lives of a group of housepainters and decorators is vividly adapted by Howard Brenton. The Ragged Trousered Philanthropists recounts the little daily successes and the disasters of a group of working-class men, living under the constant fear of being laid off by employers forever looking for new corners to cut. Both workers and bosses are caught in a system spiralling out of control, but why is it the workers always come out worse? Howard Brenton’s stage adaptation lays bare the many social injustices perpetrated on these men whilst capturing their individual characters with touching truth to life.
