About: When You Fall Down- The Buster Keaton Story

Silent screen star Buster Keaton arrives at MGM in Culver City, the film studio which is his new home, and reflects on his life and career.

Through slapstick, songs and soft shoe shuffle, follow the triumphs and trials of silent film star Buster Keaton as he makes his iconic movies. As the world whirls around him, with his marriage failing, his career in danger and turning to the bottle, Buster must hit his mark as he films the most dangerous stunt of all.

With re-creations of Buster’s tricks, mime and magic, this award-winning show is a tribute to “The Great Stone Face”; a man who always got back on his feet, no matter how many times he fell down.

A one-man musical written and performed by James Dangerfield with arrangements and instrumentals by Martyn Stringer, When You Fall Down has been performed in the US for Buster’s own family and is endorsed by The International Buster Keaton Society. It will be appearing at the Edinburgh Fringe this August.

Reviews

‘Entertaining, engaging and full of charm’ ★★★★

‘For anyone who is an admirer of Buster Keaton’s work, loves the silent movie era or just likes a good musical, this show is for you.’

(London Pub Theatres)

“When You Fall Down is a triumph” (Binnie Brennan, Keaton author).
