Written and performed by: Sarah Hayward Direct from Vancouver, Canada . . . with her flame glowing brightly! People-pleasing Pollyhymnia will do anything to get into the circus. She brazenly reinvents eight iconic circus acts including: The Two-Headed Lady, The High-Wired Act and The Bittersweet Bearded Lady. Secret theories, mysteries and Leonard Cohen are just a few of Pollyhymnia's passions as she finds her way through song, memories and sheer determination. "The show's defining moment, which hangs like a suspended breath, is her juggler . . . It's transcendent and illuminating." Eva marie Clarke, See Magazine, Edmonton, Canada "The theme of the show revolves around stripes and cracks -- in clothing, in voice, in personality, in life and career . . . It is a wonderful example of what Fringe theatre, in its boundlessness, can be."  Todd Babiak, Edmonton Journal, Canada. Schedule: Fri 20 @ 2 Sat 21 @ 2 Tue 24 @ 8 Wed 25 @ 6:15 Sat 28 @ 7:15
