A hilarious and heart-warming slapstick comedy inspired by Charlie Chaplin’s original film. This delightful show tells the story of people starting a new life in a strange place. Based on hundreds of accounts of what it is like to come to live in an unfamiliar culture, the show is about the universal experience of trying to fit in when you stand out. The performance is non-verbal, making it fully accessible for D/deaf and hard of hearing audiences and those with English as an additional language. The family friendly show has a running time of 70 minutes. “Beautifully timed buffoonery…skills honed to perfection” The Oxford Times.

The photorealistic version of the beloved Disney story has memorable visuals, impressive set-pieces and adorable yet credible animals, but precisely because they’re so realistic, it’s weird when they speak and even stranger when they sing. All the star voices in the world don’t count when you can’t simulate heart and soul.

Junction, Goole’s multi award-winning centre for the arts, opened its doors in November 2009. Junction combines three purposes – the administrative and civic base for Goole Town Council, a community centre and a busy mixed-use arts facility, hosting a wide range of live events, cinema and satellite screenings, a workshop programme and activities that reach out into our community.
Everything we do is intended to inspire and develop the way all of our communities enjoy the arts and our programme of events treads a careful path to balance popular appeal with excellent and more challenging work. Junction was instrumental in the establishment of the Small Venues Network and is involved in many regional and national initiatives all with the single purpose of bringing the best possible arts activity to the town and embedding it into the life of the area.
