“People will pay to believe that anything is possible”

1935. Dust Bowl America. As the worst recorded dust storm in history is about to hit - a storm which will come to be known as The End of the World - the tinpot “BoonDog Circus” rolls into town. 

Myra Collins, the fortune-teller, is plying her trade, for there is trade here to be done. People are desperate for even the smallest sign of hope, and Myra is no different. But these are desperate times, and hope comes at a price…

A darkly funny, one act psychological thriller based on research into charlatan psychics throughout history. Laced with poignancy and devilry, "Showmanship" is the next circus instalment by the multi award-winning BoonDog Theatre.

“A masterclass in the art of monologue”  ★★★★ (Edinburgh Guide)

"Sassy, thoughtful and darkly witty" ★★★★ (The List)

"Bewildering acting talent... an emotional tour-de-force"  ★★★★ (Broadway Baby)
