Circus of Horrors show, Bromley, Tunbridge Wells & Dartford theatres
Roll up for the Circus of Horrors
A show that stormed into the finals of Britain’s Got Talent is back with a new production. Kent audiences can get a taste of the action when Circus of Horrors: London After Midnight hits the stage at three Kent venues in March.
Ever since its conception at Glastonbury in 1995, Circus of Horrors has toured the world, dragging circus screaming and shouting into the 21st century. It’s also the only circus to have a residency in London’s theatreland for more than 100 years.
The new show is inspired by the lost 1927 silent movie London After Midnight starring Lon Chaney.
The audience is taken on a journey though our plague-ridden capital in 1665, culminating in scenes based on the Great Fire of London in 1666.
The story twists and turns as five murders are committed at various London landmarks, each one becoming more and more horrific and all intermingled with daring circus stunts – from sword swallowing to daredevil balancing acts, from hair hangers to demon dwarfs.
Dr Haze and The Interceptors from Hell provide the soundtrack to the show.
