ONCE again Lympstone Entertainments, in association with Villages in Action, are to stage a show that has garnered high praise on the Fringe of the Edinburgh International Festival.

On Thursday, February 5, multi award-winning playwright and actor Pip Utton will perform his dramatic one-man show Chaplin in Lympstone Village Hall. One of the country's leading solo players with a well-established international reputation, Pip Utton has received rave reviews both for his writing and his performances. Chaplin is the sixteenth new production he took to the Festival, which helps explain why he was dubbed by the Daily Telegraph "The doyen of the Fringe".

"Chaplin created the Tramp," says Utton, "one of the most famous cinema images of all time. And, in doing so, he trapped himself inside an image he never truly managed to escape. His comedic genius set the bench-mark for future movie makers. But he never maintained that brilliance in the world of 'talkies'. He had plenty he wanted to say, but sadly he never worked out how to say it." Perhaps Pip Utton will succeed in saying some of it for him.

Tickets for Chaplin, which can be seen at 7.30pm in Lympstone Village Hall on Thursday, February 5, are now on sale to personal callers at Lympstone Post Office or by phoning (01395) 263928.
