Through slapstick, songs and soft shoe shuffle, follow the triumphs and trials of silent star Buster Keaton making his iconic movies. As the world whirls around, his marriage failing, his career at threat and turning to the bottle, Buster must hit his mark as he films his most dangerous ever stunt. An award-winning one-man musical, performed in the US for Buster's own family and endorsed by The International Buster Keaton Society. 'Entertaining, engaging and full of charm.' (LondonPubTheatres.com), 'When You Fall Down is a triumph' (Binnie Brennan, Keaton author).
