Audacious Mr Astley

A circus man brings the inventor of circuses back to life. Ringmaster Chris Barltrop’s meticulously-researched one-man play puts ‘father of the modern circus’ Philip Astley on stage to tell first-hand the story of the art-form he founded with his wife in 1768. Five stars at the Edinburgh Fringe; consistent praise at venues ranging from literary festivals to respected museums to schools to leading studio theatres. A hit at the 2020 Watford Fringe!
