The Circus Detective - a comic fantasy of double cross, clowning and...murder.

A postman delivers a parcel to the circus. He hears a scream. In the gloom under a swinging trapeze, he sees a knife buried in the back of a body. He finds a terrified woman. Beguiled by her he tries to solve the murder but is soon lost in a web of intrigue, deceit and lies.

Circus and clowning meet Raymond Chandler in a shadowy world of menace peopled by double-crossers, femme fatales and blackmailers. Help our hero! Search for clues. Find a killer!

'A production which rates highly in the imaginative stakes, unique and articulate, and I loved every moment. Not to be missed – you do so at your own peril - you have been warned!'BBC Review June Atkins on The Deadline
