CIRCUS-CIRCUS-SMOKE-200x300

Yesterday I saw the play Circus Circus at the Fringe Festival. The play is about Eric Welch who is arrested for selling marijuana in Kentucky and spends two years in prison. I went to this play as patroness of marijuana legalization. Yes, there is probably some tie in to “Orange is ..”. but the play is not an “all about me” whine about how unfair his situation was because it was only weed. As a matter of fact, the play contrasts “Robert’s”situation with a Hispanic prisoner who receives a much longer sentence for much less cocaine. Instead, the play portrays prison as a sadistic circus complete with warden ringmaster. The play also has a nice dramatic pace. If you dear reader happen to be the owner of a small theater, consider booking this play.
