presented by Loyalty Productions
Circus Circus takes place in a world within our world. One that society is barely aware of, and one in which even if you’ve never been there you have still heard stories about. You will gain access to this world through our main character, Robert, immersed deep within the system.
Circus Circus follows Robert as he is arrested for marijuana and sent to Circus Circus State Penitentiary. Through Robert you will be exposed to the loss, degradation, and chaos that he is faced with on a daily basis, under the tight control of the spectacular, wonderful, extravagant, and sinister, Warden Gordon. He allows you access because like any good ringmaster, Warden Gordon enjoys showing off. Robert sits patiently, locked up alongside violent offenders, child molesters, and rapists! Some of these offenders even have a shorter prison sentence than him, and it’s all because he was arrested for marijuana. Does that make sense? A non-violent crime receiving more time than a violent crime? It happens every day, and every day our prison system is being over-crowded with non-violent marijuana offenders.
This is not a political, soap-box preaching, prison play or one heralding marijuana. This is Circus Circus- based entirely on a true story. A story that will be told not just through our actors, but with original music and video imagery strewn across multiple television screens in the theatre. Like any circus, we have prepared a night full of entertainment, and one thing is for certain, Circus Circus is a one of a kind, original play. Enjoy the show!
