Based in Penzance, in the south-west of England, Bash Street Theatre has built an international reputation for silent movie-style street theatre shows. Since our first performance, in Morlaix, France, in 1991, we have created 20 different productions and performed at major festivals throughout the UK and 17 other European countries, as well as in Japan, Hong Kong, Macau, South Korea, Israel and Egypt. With silent comedy, circus skills, live music and a little bit of magic, “The Strongman” is a new street theatre show from the award-winning Bash Street Theatre Co. Inspired by Charlie Chaplin’s 1928 film ‘The Circus’, and performed in the style of an old black-and-white movie, “The Strongman” tells a story of intrigue and jealousy, with a big helping of comedy and musical fun. Set in the 1920s, the story involves a traveling show that has just lost its headline act. The Strongman has died, and if his assistant does not find a replacement she will be forced to quit the circus. To make matters worse, the Boss is stealing her share of the profits!
