WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Freely inspired by Victor Hugo's novel, equal parts horror, comedy, and romance, THE MAN WHO LAUGHS is a "live silent film," performed in grayscale with live music, about a man whose face has been carved into a permanent smile and his desperate quest for the world to take him seriously. Hugo's character of Gwynplaine, "the laughing man", inspired the creation of Batman's infamous nemesis, The Joker. Stolen Chair's production will fully immerse audiences in a 1920s silent movie house. With freshly popped popcorn in hand they'll watch a humorous and heartrending story told in glorious grayscale through movement and projected title cards, with an original score performed live. Audience members are strongly encouraged to dress in 1920's fashion, and $20 tickets will be available at the door for anyone arriving in costume.
