Inspired by the comic genius of Buster Keaton and Charlie Chaplin, this is a melodrama full of action, pathos and silent comedy, combining circus skills, slapstick humour and live piano music to recreate a black-and-white movie from the golden age of the silver screen.

A ‘two-bit’ circus has arrived in town.

It’s run by a crooked showman and his long-suffering assistant, and they are running out of acts.

So when a down-at-heel traveller arrives looking for work, he is given an audition.

But he takes on more than he bargained for when he is persuaded to become a last-minute replacement for … The Lion Tamer!

Bash Street Theatre are making a return to their home county of Cornwall after several years on the road in Europe.

Audience: Everyone
