Behold the dying days of the travelling freak show and the true story of its star attraction: Julia Pastrana, the ape-woman.
Theodore Lent is a calculating businessman on the cutting edge of one of America’s most popular exports: the travelling freak show. When his wife (and star attraction) Julia falls pregnant, Theo couldn’t be happier. What could be better than two stars for the price of one?
However, dark clouds are forming in Theo’s immediate future, as he begins taking steps toward the decision that will cost him his friends, his sanity, and perhaps even his life…
A heart-wrenching world premiere of the tragic, true tale of Julia Pastrana from acclaimed WA playwright, Nathaniel Moncrieff.
