Charlie and Stan

Tue 31st Aug - Sat 4th Sep

Presented by David Pugh, Told By An Idiot and Theatre Royal Bath Productions

In 1910, the then unknown  Charlie Chaplin and Stan Laurel set sail from Liverpool to New York as part of Fred Karno’s famous music hall troupe. On the voyage, they shared a cabin, they shared comedy routines and they shared laughter...

Inspired by real life events, Told by an Idiot’s acclaimed production of Charlie and Stan is the remarkable story of the greatest double act that nearly was and is a hilarious and deeply moving homage to two men who changed the world of comedy forever.

Told by an Idiot have garnered critical acclaim and devoted audiences worldwide for their wonderfully theatrical shows.

(This glorious production will star Danielle Bird as Charlie Chaplin, Jerone Marsh-Reid as Stan Laurel, Nick Haverson as Fred Karno and Sara Alexander playing all the other parts, including Chaplin’s mother, and the piano! They will be joined by Reggie, making his stage debut as Scraps the Dog. Reggie will not play matinees – something to do with Elaine Paige – and, at those performances, the part of Scraps will be played by a puppet.)
