Inspired by our new production, The Strange Tale of Charlie Chaplin and Stan Laurel, we're working with underrepresented theatre makers to devise and create short films together, which capture the skill and spirit of silent movie comedy. 

We'll be screening the films alongside performances while we're on tour, and in a variety of local venues.

You can watch the films we've already made below:

'Belgian Bun Bonanza' was created with 'Funky Llama' mentored artists and was screened at Theatre Royal, Plymouth in November 2019.



'Cops & Robbers' was created by Open Theatre artists and was screened at Birmingham Repertory Theatre in February 2020.



'Come With Me Sunshine' was created by Hubbub Theatre artists and was screened at Birmingham Repertory Theatre in February 2020.
