Buster Keaton, star of the silent screen, arrives in Culver City, at the film studio which is to be his new home. He takes this moment to reflect on his life and career.
When You Fall Down tells Buster's story from his first movie-making experience in 1917, to his signing by MGM 11 years later. We join Buster on seven separate days from this period, following his personal and professional triumphs and trials. With slapstick, songs, a soft shoe shuffle, the show is a whole new theatrical tribute to "The Great Stone Face"; a man who always got back on his feet, no matter how many times he fell down.
James Dangerfield is an actor, singer and musician who has appeared on stage and screen. He played Buster on stage in 2009, and has been planning this show about his hero ever since.
When You Fall Down will receive a US premiere at the International Buster Keaton Convention in October 2017.
