Hilary Chaplain
"A Life In Her Day"

Photocredit: Stefan Smidt

Regie: Avner Eisenberg

Unconventional and outrageously funny, A Life In Her Day is a solo comedy about the tragedy of growing up and the promise of happily ever after. A wonderful mix of physical comedy, object theatre, puppetry, and serious theatre, the show is an hour-long one woman and a few props show where our heroine makes do with a “pretend” family of common household goods. An original amalgam of Lucille Ball and Charlie Chaplin, Hilary Chaplain is a masterful physical comedienne who exposes her most intimate moments after discovering a diamond “engagement” ring in her cereal box and pursing the life that ensues.

//! Press commentary:
Chaplain manages to go beyond mere slapstick and develops a sympathetic character that the audience can latch on to....Time Out New York

I strongly recommend that everyone go and see Hilary Chaplain’s one-woman-and-afew-props-show, this wonderful wacky and quirky story of you, or of your cousin, your girlfriend, your ex-wife… nytheatre.com

It’s beautifully funny and sad, and very human… Charleston City Paper
