Showmanship

Written by Lucy Roslyn
Book Now

1935. Dust Bowl America. As the worst recorded dust storm in history is about to hit, a tinpot circus rolls into town. Myra Collins, the fortune-teller, is plying her trade, for there is trade here to be done. People are desperate for even the smallest sign of hope, but these are desperate times, and hope comes at a price…

A new darkly funny, one act, one woman, psychological thriller based on research into charlatan psychics throughout history. A fall from grace, a desire for revenge, a longing for hope. Laced with poignancy and devilry, Showmanship is the next circus installment by award winning company BoonDog Theatre .

BoonDog Theatre are a small collaborative company making darkly comic, character based theatre. Their interweaving circus series, all set within the fictional “Boon and Doggett Circus”, began with “The Stooge”: a one man show about a clown whose partner chokes to death on a ping pong ball. Following the 2017 Les Enfants Terribles Greenwich Partnership Award winning production “Goody”, comes their next circus installment “Showmanship”.
