POISON CIRCUS is the story of a small dysfunctional circus family whose relationships quickly dissolve into poisonous revenge and freak transmogrify. There’s Eubie, the former circus performer who’s trapped in a wheelchair and brimming with tyranny. Barbara, the estranged wife and ambitious newly crowned ringmaster. And Copeland, the son, the future, the runaway.

Things quickly get toxic when the circus sets off across the desert and a vengeful plot to poison the circus performers bubbles up. And so the poison flows and the mutations jump out. POISON CIRCUS was written and scored by Samson Y Hiss. It was inspired by the novel Geek Love. It’s a world premiere. It’s toxic. Get your tickets now!
