Circus act Gubu and Harle have come to town. When the beautiful Angelina naively steps into the ring they trick and seduce her into becoming part of the show. In a world of high flying trapeze, escape artists and knife throwing they flip, they twist, they win, they lose.

"Spellbinding production, deceptively simple and thoroughly effective."
"This circus is enchanting. a coup de theatre, it is daring, touching and beautiful."
"This is spectacle with a heart; a timeless enactment of jealousy and love, that, in the hands of these performers, is allowed to soar."
"Mesmerising blend of theatre and spectacle.a consummate display that combines physical grace with poignant intimacy."
"Circus is one of those shows in which the set, the music, the performers and the choreography combine to produce an entertainment as near perfection as you are likely to get"
Irish Mail on Sunday
"This is a circus that should visit every town and village for its exuberance and its humanity.Raymond Keane has wrought a marvel"
