Originally set one night during the Oktoberfest in 1929, Stephens' adaptation draws clear parallels between the political tensions of the period, around the time of the Wall Street Crash and its global implications, to today's social uncertainties, yet still finds plenty of dry humour in the bright lights of a busy funfair.Performers Ben Batt (Cash), Katie Moore (Caroline), Ian Bartholomew (Billy Smoke), Christopher Wright (Davy Spear), Chris Jack (Ringmaster), Kate Dobson (Maria), CiCi Howells (Juanita), Sally Hodgkiss (Elli), Victoria Gee (Esther), James Lusted (narrator/Tiny), Rhodri Meilir (Chase), Max Runham (Funfair band), Michael Ryan (Frankie Marr).
