Performances: Thursday 11th July @ 1pm & 7:30pm and Friday 12th July @ 7:30pm

The Marvo twins are the current and proud owners of Marvo’s Marvellous Circus. The Troupe have been touring the world with their mesmerising acts for centuries and rumour has it that the circus carry with them a fortune, gathered from around the world over their generations of travel.

An unscrupulous couple of con artists, who ply their trade as a Hypnotist and a Fortune Teller, hear of this fortune and between them hatch a plan to steal the treasure and live the rest of their lives in luxury.

Is the treasure real or is it just a myth?  Can the close knit family of the travelling circus be broken by the Hypnotist and Fortune Teller?  Roll up, Roll up and all will be revealed inside the greatest show on earth.

Between the Wi and the Fi

Performances: Thursday 25th July @ 7:30pm and Friday 26th July @ 1pm & 7:30pm

From mobile phones to virtual personal assistants, from drones to androids, technology is everywhere in our modern lives. However as technology evolves, loneliness is also spreading throughout modern society. In this inclusive play with music we explore both these growing epidemics through the lives of a busy modern family. Written, devised and performed by a cast aged 11 to 94!
