Tonight at the Museum – Charlie Chaplin! » The Cinema Museum, London

CHARLIE CHAPLIN RETURNS TO THE STAGE
From Lambeth Workhouse to Hollywood and Back Again

The play is being performed at the Cinema Museum off Kennington Lane. You'll be familiar with the venue, but you may not know that it was once the Lambeth Workhouse.
And therein lies the key to the play. Charlie Chaplin a Walworth/Kennington lad spent some time in the Lambeth Workhouse as a child with his brother Syd and mother Hannah before he went off to become one of the most influential players in the movie business.
Tonight at the Museum Charlie Chaplin is about Chaplin’s life as the Little Tramp, written by Gillian Plowman who writes for the Beeb and directed by Pamela Howard OBE who directs around the world and about to do a tribute at the Royal Court etc. Everyone involved is being paid well and with a cast of 14 makes it a rather costly production. But I really would love to pack the house and see you there.
