The Strongman

Category: Show Related artist: Bash Street Theatre

Inspired by Charlie Chaplin’s 1928 film ‘The Circus’, THE STRONGMAN tells a story of intrigue and jealousy, with a big helping of comedy and musical ‘joie de vivre’.
Set in the 1920s, the story involves a travelling show that has just lost its headline act. The Strongman has died, and if his assistant doesn’t find a replacement she will be forced to quit the circus. To make matters worse, the Boss is stealing her share of the profits…..
Who can save her from homelessness and destitution?
Will she find a Strongman in time?
And will he be able to lift the Two-Ton Challenge that awaits him?
With silent comedy, circus skills, live music and a little bit of magic, THE STRONGMAN is a brand new, street theatre show from the award-winning Bash Street Theatre Co.
The show is ideal for all ages, lasts approximately 55 minutes, and can be performed in the evening or daytime.
