Love, Labour, Lost


July 8th



Join Clown Noir on a voyage of discovery, comedy, and heartbreak. In 60 mins of physical comedy, watch as promises are broken and his life spirals out of control. Following on from the success of "This Is Me" Clown Noir returns with a clown adaptation of Shakespeare's "Love's Labours Lost" a gloriously funny and tender portrayal of a young clown leaving the circus for the first time in order to study abroad and of course things don't go to plan.


With warm up and safety announcements by Traditional Circus Legend and Water Rat "Bobbo Roberts".
