In 1889, Charlie Chaplin was born into a theatrical family – both parents were Music Hall entertainers. His early life was beset by poverty and despair; his father died an alcoholic when Charlie was 12, his mother suffered a mental breakdown and he and his older half-brother, Sydney, had to be placed in the workhouse at Lambeth.

Performance was in his blood and this new musical traces his struggle to break free of his humble beginnings and follow a quest for identity and fulfilment.
