It's 1899 and all of Europe is agape at the arrival of the new century! The world crackles with possibilities - and its people dance to the irresistible rhythms of money, sex, love and freedom. Swinging above them all is a showbiz sensation; a fierce, vulgar, pant-droppingly sexy trapeze artist called Fevvers. The story charts her unlikely love affair with Walser, a world-weary journalist on a mission to expose her as a fake. "Nights at the Circus" opens at the Lyric Hammersmith in January 2006. Emma Rice, acclaimed Artistic Director of Kneehigh Theatre ("Tristan & Yseult", "The Bacchae") directs Angela Carter's great mythic novel. With rising star Natalia Tena as Fevvers ("About a Boy", "Mrs Henderson Presents" and "Shared Experience's Bronte" & "Gone to Earth") and Gisli Orn Gardarsson as Walser ("Young Vic's Romeo & Juliet and Woyzeck").
