What is it?
Bash Street Theatre present The Lion Tamer, a melodrama full of action, pathos and silent comedy from a bygone era. It combines circus skills, slapstick comedy and live piano accompaniment to bring you a black-and-white movie show from the golden age of the silver screen. A down-at-heel showman is rapidly running out of acts for his travelling circus when a stranger arrives in town. When the lion tamer has an unfortunate accident, the newcomer is ‘volunteered’ for the job.
Inspired by the comic genius of Buster Keaton and Charlie Chaplin.
