in the Studio Theatre






devised and directed by Anita Hickmore


"ROLL UP! ROLL UP! WELCOME TO THE GREATEST SHOW ON EARTH! See extraordinary acts and amazing feats! COME AND MEET THE FREAKS!" Discover the lives, loves, dreams and disappointments of the freakshow troupe. See what happens when the audience goes home. Who are the freaks, who the fakes? Who is exploited: the performer or the voyeur? Is the freakshow a sanctuary or a prison? And who are you inside your skin?

Freakshow is a devised production, inspired by a process rather than a script. It will be visual, physical, musical and unique to the people who create it.
