The Strange Tale of Charlie Chaplin and Stan Laurel

Theatre Royal

In 1910, the unknown Charlie Chaplin and Stan Laurel set sail for New York as part of Fred Karno’s famous mu-sic hall troupe.

On this journey, Charlie and Stan shared a cabin and then spent two years together touring North America, with Stan as Charlie’s understudy. Stan returned home, later finding success with his soulmate Oliver Hardy.

Charlie developed his Little Tramp character and within five years became one of the most famous figures in the world.
