Taking Charlie by Neil Warhurst

Neil Warhurst writer, directed by Calum Price

A dark comic fantasy set in 1978 about two Eastern European unemployed auto-mechanics who kidnap and ransom the body of silent film star Charlie Chaplin in order to set up their own garage. Based on a real life but very bad idea that will leave you with two useful life lessons; firstly do not dig up dead comedians, and secondly when you’re face to face with a powerful idiot there’s only one thing to do… laugh!

About WTG

Washington Theatre Group is made up of members of different ages, backgrounds, skills and experiences working together to put on a great show.

We welcome and encourage new members to join and take part in whatever aspects of theatre production interests them, but also encourage people to dip a toe outside of their comfort zone and try new things such as painting set, writing a script, acting on stage and controlling light and sound. Everything is important. It’s also a great way to meet new people and make new friends.

If you’re interested in joining, just pop along to the Arts Centre in Washington on a Tuesday night around 7pm and ask at reception for Washington Theatre Group. If you would like more information before taking the plunge please use the contact form on this page or on the Contact Us page.

NOTE: WTG is an adult theatre group, all members must be 18 years of age or above. For information about children’s theatre groups please contact the Arts Centre .
