From Press Release

Magmoe Media
Written by R.J.Downes and Directed by Kate Fenton

TIGHTROPE is a drama/comedy about family dysfunction and the trials and tribulations of growing up as a member of a travelling show.

Raised in a circus run by her parents, Sheila grows up knowing only the insides of the giant tent. But behind the spotlights, clown makeup and death-defying acts is a world as painful and real as any other.

Written by R.J.Downes, (Writer, Without Whom, 2008 Toronto Fringe) who?s work has been described as ??Edward Albee with a touch of Sci-Fi?? and directed by Kate Fenton (Director/Co-Creator, Fish Face, 2009 Toronto Fringe) and a powerhouse team of actors including Adam Seybold (Writer/Director, Code Blue, 2009 Toronto Fringe), Mark Gibson (Actor, Code Blue, 2009 Toronto Fringe) and June Morrow (Writer/Performer, Miss April Day?s School for Burgeoning Young Strippers, 2007 Toronto Fringe), TIGHTROPE features dramatic performances along with turns of red-nose clowning and grotesque. A circus tale like no other!
