CORONAVIRUS: All UK venues closed on 16th March 2020 and there is currently no planned re-opening time though it will not be before 1st June 2020 and is most likely to be September (according to some West End producers). Some shows have been cancelled, or closed early, but many are being rescheduled and we are trying to keep up with the changes - assume that anything posted for April and May is actually postponed or cancelled.

About the Show/Event

Chaplin: Birth of a Tramp
Information for Chaplin: Birth of a Tramp at Old Rep, Birmingham (Play). 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 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. This production is being produced with the full endorsement of the Chaplin Estate and the Chaplin Family.
Approximate runtime 110minutes (including any interval).
Author Ross McGregor. Company Arrows & Traps. Producer Christopher Tester. Director Ross McGregor.
