1666 was a pretty bad year for London (I mean, just look at all those sixes), so you you wouldn't think any more pain could be inflicted on there poor seventeenth century souls. Wrong.
They may be mad, they may be insane, they may even be a little bit sick, but the ghoulish troupe from The Circus of Horrors stole the hearts of the British public when they entered the reality TV show, Britain's Got Talent. Making it all the way to the finals, even Simon Cowell said 'I loved it' (no mean feat), and that 'the royal family would love to watch it.'
I can't speak for the taste of our Queen, but I certainly think the general audience will have a blast when they pile into the Lyric Theatre for the first time on the 28th October.
Inspired by London After Midnight, a silent mystery movie made in 1927, The Circus of Horrors presents a brand new show set in 1666 at the time of the plague and climaxing with The Great Fire of London. Full of grisly murders, sword swallowers, knife throwers, daredevils, dwarfish demons, it is the perfect show for Halloween. The fun does not stop there, however, as you can book ticket up until the 16th December. Tickets are between £20-£35.
