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 onboard a tramp steamer 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 but by the end of the journey they had drifted apart... yet they would both go on to become the biggest stars of the age.
Inspired by real life events, Told by an Idiot's acclaimed production of Charlie and Stan is the remarkable story of the greatest comedy double act that nearly was.
With an original piano score played live every night, Charlie and Stan 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. With Charlie and Stan they have uncovered a hidden and poignant chapter of comedy history shining an unusual light on a pair of show business legends.
This "blissful entertainment" (Daily Telegraph) is coming to Cheltenham prior to London's glittering West End.
