It's 1899 and all of Europe is agape at the arrival of the new century! The world crackles with possibilities - and its people dance to the irresistible rhythms of money, sex, love and freedom. Swinging above them all is a showbiz sensation; a fierce, vulgar, pant-droppingly sexy trapeze artist called Fevvers. The story charts her unlikely love affair with Walser, a world-weary journalist on a mission to expose her as a fake. Nights at the Circus opened at the Lyric Hammersmith in January 2006. Emma Rice, acclaimed Artistic Director of Kneehigh Theatre (Tristan & Yseult, The Bacchae) directs Angela Carter's great mythic novel. With rising star Natalia Tena as Fevvers (About a Boy, Mrs Henderson Presents and Shared Experience's Bronte & Gone to Earth) and Gisli Orn Gardarsson as Walser (Young Vic's Romeo & Juliet and Woyzeck).
