About Poison Circus

"Poison Circus" is the story of a small dysfunctional circus family whose relationships quickly dissolve—with the help of a shocking runaway—into poisonous revenge and freak transmogrification. There’s Eubie, the former circus performer who’s trapped in the arms of a wheelchair and boiling with tyranny. Barbara, the estranged wife and ambitious newly crowned ringmaster. And Copeland, the son, the future star, the runaway.

Things quickly get toxic when the circus sets off across the desert and a vengeful plot to poison the circus performers emerges. They’re innocent. They’re ripe. They’re easy targets. And so the poison flows with no end in sight. "Poison Circus" is a musical tale of transmogrification—inspired by the novel "Geek Love." When the lights go out and you find yourself with a new tail. What do you do?

"Poison Circus" will feature vocal operatics, an organ quintet, harrowing circus acts and live human mutations. It’s a world premiere. It’s intoxicating.
