Slaughter Brothers Dime Circus
Welcome to the Slaughter Brothers Dime Circus: part bedtime story, part Clockwork Orange. Half Looney Tunes, half nightmare. The Slaughter Brothers Dime Circus spares no expense to satisfy your deepest, most abnormal curiosities. When the members of an overworked travelling circus are forced to improvise after their boss unceremoniously fires almost the entire troupe, what follows is a play that transplants its audience into a surreal world of fantasy and retribution. Equal parts Bugs Bunny and Murder Ballad, Slaughter Brothers Dime Circus is a meta-theatrical reflection on the nature of power and revenge.

With an original script by critically acclaimed theatre performer/creator Sean Sullivan (a virtual Nijinsky of performance art  The New York Times; hilariously funny, demented, even dangerous and always kinetic  The Toronto Sun) and Music and Lyrics by Sean Sullivan and Matthew Reid, Slaughter Brothers Dime Circus is a theatrical experience that explores what it means to dream, to lust and to be punished. In a world filled with corrupt CEOs and the unwanted male gaze, this circus indulges your best revenge fantasy and turns it on its head.  

Highly stylized and visually striking, this production incorporates intricate stage illusions, classic clown lazzis, horror-infused projections and live music culminating in an intrinsically unique theatrical experience in the intimate venue of the Grand Canyon Theatre.
