This event has been and gone.

The Immigrant is a hilarious and heart-warming slapstick comedy inspired by Charlie Chaplin’s classic film.

Full of wild slapstick and inventive visual comedy, this delightful show captures the spirit of the original film to tell the bittersweet story of migrants starting a new life in the West today. It is based on hundreds of accounts of what it is like to come to live in a strange country and trying to fit in when you stand out.

Chaplin’s film was released in 1917, exactly one hundred years before the US passed the most controversial immigration policy in recent history. Chris Michael has captured the spirit of the original film and re-worked the content to tell a story of modern times.
