You are invited to join a murder mystery where you get caught up in a moment frozen in time to revisit the scene of a heinous crime; a Big Top circus that burnt to ash in a blazing inferno almost a century ago.
According to old newspaper clippings, there were no survivors and the cause of the fire was never determined. Locals claim that every year on the anniversary of the fire the flickering lights of the Big Top Circus can be seen in the distance beckoning passersby to buy a ticket to the infernal show. Those who had the courage to investigate or innocently bought a ticket reported that the Big Top would crash down amidst screams of horror at midnight before the spectre would disappear leaving them standing in an empty field.
What happened over a century ago? Can the mystery be solved and spirits be laid to rest. Or will the troupe be doomed to relive that horrible night for an eternity?
Expect a Big Top horror with clowns, freak show artists and circus performers in desperate need to move on.
