An Asking For Trouble and Critical Stages Production
Created & Performed by Christy Flaws and Luke O’Connor
A magical physical circus adventure for young people and their families.
Dive into a magical world of play and creation, where everyday objects become a universe of fun and adventure. Two strange heroes are hunting for whispers of possibility when they discover a pile of seemingly ordinary objects like sheets, broomsticks and cushions. Watch as they transform them into fantastical places to play and explore using ridiculous clowning, spectacular acrobatics and beautiful visual imagery.
Suitable for ages 3 – 10 and their families
