When You Fall Down - The Buster Keaton Story
Through slapstick, songs and soft shoe shuffle, follow the triumphs and trials of silent star Buster Keaton making his iconic movies. As the world whirls around, his marriage failing, his best friend on trial, his career at threat and turning to the bottle, Buster must hit his mark as he films his most dangerous ever stunt.
With music, mime, magic and re-creations of Buster’s routines, the show has just finished a month-long run at The Pleasance, Edinburgh. It has appeared in Paris, West End theatre The Other Palace, sell out London shows and in the US for Buster’s own family.
“Entertaining, engaging and full of charm, it’s a very fitting tribute to one of Hollywood’s greatest actor-directors” LONDON PUB THEATRES
