WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Inspired by Germany's Circus Sarrasani, playwright Kathy Boussina brings us into the big top of a world-renowned circus in 1936 Berlin. When a peculiar anthropologist visits Cirque Exotique du Monde seeking oddities for his own collection, the equilibrium of this patchwork family of misfits is shaken. But when the circus catches the eye of Frau Goebbels, all is at stake. Illusions must be maintained, secrets kept, and personal sacrifices made. The show must go on because lives depend upon it. World premiere.
