The Lion Tamer is one of a trilogy of silent movie shows from the award winning Bash Street Theatre Co.
Inspired by the comic genius of Buster Keaton and Charlie Chaplin, it has been specially designed to tour village halls and small scale theatres.
It’s a melodrama full of action, pathos and silent comedy, combining circus skills, slapstick humour and live piano music to recreate a black and white movie from the golden age of the silver screen.
A two bit circus has arrived in town. It’s run by a crooked showman and his long suffering assistant and they are running out of acts. So when a down at heel traveller arrives looking for work he is given an audition. But he takes on more than he bargained for when he is persuaded to become a last minute replacement for …. The Lion Tamer!
