The silent film that captured the imaginations of a modern cinema audience, The Artist is a crowd-pleasing tribute to the magic of silent cinema. Clever, joyous and with visual style to spare, the film is set in Hollywood, 1927, as silent movie star George Valentin wonders if the arrival of talking pictures will cause him to fade into oblivion until he pairs up with Peppy Miller, a young dancer set for a big break.

The Artist has mesmerised film audiences across the world for over a decade, winning five Academy Awards, seven BAFTAs and three Golden Globe Awards. Now the beguiling love story is reinvented for the stage in a dazzling celebration of silent cinema that blends cutting-edge theatre-making with iconic music of the period – Theatre Royal Plymouth.
