2 From champagne to socialism, and no, that’s not incongruous ... The STUC in its home at Woodlands Road, Glasgow, is hosting a one-man adaptation of THE book that forces you to pick a side, The Ragged Trousered Philanthropists: “There is no such thing as being neutral: we must either help or hinder”. Neil Gore has adapted and transformed this book that was written more than 100 years ago into a one-man play. There will be drinks and snacks and a chance to meet the very good folks from Better Than Zero. Tonight, 7pm.
