Mack and Mabel
at Southwark Playhouse

1920s Hollywood. A time when movies were silent and cinema was magic. Mack Sennett, 'King of Comedy' and creator of The Keystone Cops, discovers Mabel Normand, a waitress from Brooklyn, casts her in his two-reelers and turns her into a star. So began one of Hollywood's most tempestuous and heart-wrenching love stories.
But life isn't like the movies - ambition, dalliance and the impending but inevitable threat of change put unbearable pressure on their relationship. Romance turns to jealousy as stardom invites scandal and deceit.
With a spectacular, soaring score including 'Look What Happened To Mabel', 'I Won't Send Roses' and 'Time Heals Everything' Mack and Mabel is a beautiful, touching and ultimately heart-breaking story of two of Hollywood's greatest icons.
