With silent comedy, circus skills, live music and a little bit of magic, The Strongman is a brand new family show from the award-winning Bash Street Theatre Co.

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.....

Inspired by Charlie Chaplin’s 1928 film ‘The Circus’ Bash Street Theatre’s new silent movie-style show tells a story of intrigue and jealousy, with a big helping of comedy and musical ‘joie de vivre’.

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?

The show is ideal for all ages, lasts approximately 60 minutes, and can be performed in the evening or daytime.
