Written and devised by Zoe Seaton & Nicky Harley, and directed by Zoe Seaton Freak Show is a highly inventive blast of theatre colliding comedy, visuals and taut poetic text with true stories of people who were displayed as freaks in the 18th Century.

Fast-talking eejits are hell-bent to get rich quick with their bizarre bazaar of curiosities and the unexpected, but they get more than they bargained for in this radical roadshow of revenge.
Inspired by the true story of a giantess from Portrush, Mary Murphy, Freak Show examines themes of performance, exploitation and consent and reflects a contemporary fascination with fame, scandal and privacy. Clashing dark with light, it will contain maximum craic and heartbreak in spades. And an Irish jig. On Stilts.
