Buy Tickets Taking Charlie

Presented by Goofus
Written by Neil Warhurst

Taking Charlie is a dark comedic fantasy, based on a true story, about the abduction of Charlie Chaplin’s body by two hapless kidnappers in 1978. A tale full of bad ideas and dead comics, the play uses puppetry, physical theatre and shadow play to create the world the characters inhabit. This is Goofus' first tour - the production is supported using public funding by the National Lottery through Arts Council England.'

Running time approximately 70 minutes with no interval.
Suitable for ages 12+ due to scenes of a sexual nature.

" It was clear we were in the company of consumate story-tellers, unafraid to take risks in pursuit of a laugh - or a tear." - Gordon Hamlyn (Public Review)

"Inventive", "farcical", "stimulating", "kinetic" - words used by our audience to describe the show.
