Chaplin: Birth of a Tramp
Venue: The Georgian Theatre Royal
Time: 7.30pm
“What a sad business, being funny” - Limelight (1952)


For over 100 years, Charlie Chaplin has been the world’s best-loved clown. His brilliant comic creation of The Little Tramp is the first and most recognisable cinematic icon in history. But his remarkable story of stardom and success has a darker side.

Raised in the horrific, grinding poverty of a Victorian slum, Charlie never knew the security of a stable family. Whilst his parents destroyed themselves with disastrous ambition and unshakeable vice, Charlie was thrown at the mercy of the workhouse. Desperate to escape his feral existence on the streets of South London, Charlie became captivated by the shining lights of vaudeville, and gradually began to see a way out.

Critically-acclaimed Arrows & Traps theatre company return with an examination of the relationship between experience and creativity, and invite you to discover how Chaplin spun personal tragedy into universal comedy, in a psychological exploration of one of the world’s most remarkable lives.

Written and directed by Ross McGregor, this production is being produced with the full endorsement of the Chaplin Estate and the Chaplin Family.

Tickets £11 to £16 from Box Office on 01748 825252 or online.
