Silenced on Barbour Street


  One-act. 40-50 minutes

 10-30 actors, large female cast

 On July 6, 1944, a fire roared across the top of the 48-foot high tent during the matinee performance of the Ringling Brothers and Barnum and Bailey Circus, claiming the lives of 144 spectators. In this ensemble driven drama, 15 victims of this tragedy must face their guilt and deepest fears in order to escape from a sadistic ringmaster who has trapped them in a mysterious circus purgatory. Part historical drama, part mystery, and part psychological thriller, those trapped must work together to find the key to their escape.
