ROLL UP! ROLL UP! By Jane Page
Take one tired and ageing circus, add in a secret inspection by the Tax Department and you have a quirky one act comedy play that gives actors untold opportunities to show their range and versatility.
There is a man in a gorilla suit; two men in a horse outfit; a heartless Lothario on the flying trapeze; Siamese twins who hate each other (awkward); a plate spinning act that is absolutely smashing (literally); one half of a knife throwing act (?) and much more.
The play is charming, has pathos and addresses the unexpected. A stylistic piece that is tailor-made for one act festivals.
