ABOUT CIRCUS CIRCUS
Circus Circus follows Robert as he is arrested for marijuana possession and sent to Circus Circus State Penitentiary. There under the absolute control of the ringmaster, Warden Gordon, he is exposed to loss, degradation, and chaos on a daily basis. Under these conditions and incarcerated alongside murderers, rapists, and child molesters, how can a nonviolent criminal like Robert possibly survive?
For the record Circus Circus debuted in July 2012 at the Kentucky Center for the Performing Arts in Louisville. It also enjoyed a six performance run at The Den Theatre in Chicago in June 2013.
