In this world premiere by Portland playwright Susan Mach, a 4-year-old boy is snatched and ransomed by down-on-their-luck roustabouts. His father, the police and P.T. Barnum attempt to outsmart the captors using newspaper headlines, trains and death-defying trickery, while a mother mourns what she has lost.  Meanwhile, Tom Thumb, the Strong Man, a trapeze artist and a Circassian psychic create their own acts at the boy’s expense. Loosely based on true story, this media frenzy and entertainment spectacle of 1874 is a tightrope mystery where a boy’s life hangs in the balance amid the self-serving interests of white collars and circus-folk vying for the upper hand.

Performances: Tuesday - Sunday @ 7:30pm; Sunday @ 2:00pm
