The Immigrant

If you want hilarious and heartwarming slapstick comedy then look no further! Inspired by Charlie Chaplin’s original film, this delightful show tells the bittersweet story of people starting a new life in the West today.

Exactly 100 years after the release of Chaplin’s short film, the USA passed the most controversial immigration policy in recent history, so the experience of people coming to live in America today is in stark contrast to Chaplin’s optimistic portrayal. But Chris Michael has reworked the content of the original film  to re-tell the story so that it reflects modern times.
