THE TRAMP'S NEW WORLD

THURSDAY, DEC. 3–SATURDAY, DEC. 19, DURHAM

MANBITES DOG THEATER—Some 20 years after the death of silent movies, author and film critic James Agee tried to persuade Charlie Chaplin to bring back his most iconic character for one last film. In it, the Tramp would be the sole survivor of an atomic blast over New York City. Though Chaplin rejected Agee's screenplay, he accepted his friendship. Still, the screenplay was never produced, and it remained unpublished until 2005. Playwright and performer Rob Jansen has adapted the story of Agee's cinematic vision into a multimedia work combining live action and original film. Joseph Megel directs. 8:15 p.m. Dec. 35, 1012 and 1619; 2 p.m. Dec. 6; 7:30 p.m. Dec. 13, $5$25, 703 Foster St., Durham, 919-682-3343, www.manbitesdogtheater.org. —Byron Woods
