Greg Chapman in Condensed Histories: Silent Movie Live
Thu 16th 19:30
Greg Chapman. In his new show Greg Chapman pays homage to Chaplin and his heroes from the days of silent cinema as he creates a ‘live silent movie’ filled with fun, comedy, variety skills and moving moments.
Where Chaplin had his ‘Little Tramp’, Greg has his ‘Juggler’. The show follows a ‘rags to riches’ story of a young street performer performing in the hopes of a few pennies in his hat, who rises to the dizzy heights of fame.
All this combined with a talk on Chaplin’s own ‘rags to riches’ story and silent movies make this an evening to shout about!
Doors open at 19.00 for a 19.30 start. Tickets available from Billetto.
