The Strange Tale of Charlie Chaplin and Stan Laurel
Information for The Strange Tale of Charlie Chaplin and Stan Laurel at Home Theatre (formerly Cornerhouse), Manchester (Play). In 1910 the unknown Charlie Chaplin and Stan Laurel set sail for New York as part of Fred Karno's famous music hall troupe. On this journey, Charlie and Stan shared a cabin and then spent two years together touring North America, with Stan as Charlie's understudy. Stan returned home, later finding success with his soulmate Oliver Hardy. Charlie developed his Little Tramp character and within five years became one of the most famous figures in the world. In Charlie Chaplin's highly detailed autobiography Stan Laurel is never mentioned. Stan talked about Charlie all his life. Playing fast and loose with the facts and with an original piano score composed by Mercury Award Nominee Zoe Rahman The Strange Tale of Charlie Chaplin and Stan Laurel is no nostalgic bio-drama, but a hilarious and deeply moving homage to two men who changed the world of comedy forever.
Author Paul Hunter. Producer Told by an Idiot. Producer Theatre Royal Plymouth (with Royal & Derngate Northampton and Unity Theatre Liverpool). Director Paul Hunter.
