Rollicking Entertainment (Battle of the Bastards, Mr. and Mrs. Alexander, The Dunstan Creek Seance) are turning up the heat at this R18 Halloween event.

This Halloween steps right up to some of the most notorious stunts in carny folklore. A nail-biting and naughty experience brings you the freakiest side of sinister circus and spine chilling sideshow. Sourcing inspiration from some of the biggest names in the annals of magic and mystery such as Houdini, Ripley's Believe It or Not and those dudes they based The Prestige on.

Join real life husband and wife Lizzie Tollemache and David Ladderman for what could be the last hour of their lives. Yay!

“Circus Spectacular. Unforgettable theatrical showbiz” - The Press (NZ).

“Mind boggling territory with distinctive vintage flair” - Hull Daily Mail (UK).

"Edge of your seat, breathtaking fun" - Onstage Ottawa (Canada).

Warning: This show contains strong language and extremely dangerous live stunts.
