RUNNING TIME / NOTICES: 60mins (no interval).

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 hope comes at a price…

A darkly funny, 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 is 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.
