The Man Who Stole the Circus

29 May

Iris Theatre presents a one off musical showcase by author David Richmond and composer Jofre Alsina.

Once, the biggest circus under canvas ruled the road…. it came in on trains, moved on flatbeds, built a city overnight, and played to hundreds the next day. In 1940’s America, we watch the final hours of the last great travelling circus.

Maria, the beautiful trapeze artist battles between her two worlds: the ground and flying. Mortello, who fell from the high wire, was injured, and now runs the show, clashes with Flashy West, heir to the ownership of the circus and a playboy millionaire who wants to be something more: the man who saves the circus from financial failure.

Only one man can own the circus. Only one man can run it. When they collide, disaster is the only possible outcome. But who will win? Who will steal the circus for themselves?
Come find out.
