Nights at the Circus Summary

Nights at the Circus by Angela Carter

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" opens 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").
