Enjoyable one-man performance on encounter between Charlie Chaplin and Hitler
One can’t help but reflect that Romuald Wicza-Pokojski’s production which speaks of Charlie Chaplin’s (Krystian Wieczynski) encounter with Hitler’s henchmen while he struggled for money to complete The Great Dictator, loses a little in translation from its original Polish. For all that, it’s an enjoyable one-man performance with a fascinating story to tell about the collision between politics and art.
New Town Theatre, 220 0143, until 28 Aug, 2pm, £10–£12 (£8–£10).
