Showmanship, by Lucy Roslyn
“You want hope?
… Make me an offer”
1935. Dust Bowl America. As the worst dust storm in history briefly recedes, a tinpot touring Circus rolls into town. A fortune teller is plying her trade. People are desperate for anything that might feel like hope, to know that all avenues are not shut.
But if your pockets are empty, how do you pay? What else do you have of value?
A darkly funny psychological thriller, laced with poignancy and devilry, Showmanship is the next installment by the award-winning BoonDog Theatre.
