With time being precious during the Edinburgh Festival Fringe we challenged this year’s acts to deliver a 50-word elevator pitch for their show. This time it’s the turn of James Dangerfield on his show When You Fall Down: The Buster Keaton Story.
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.
