Zippos Circus is delighted to announce that Cirque Berserk!, the UK’s biggest and boldest theatre/circus spectacular, will be coming to Plymouth for a limited engagement in May . 

Combining beautiful contemporary circus artistry with hair-raising, death-defying stunts, all designed specially for staging in a proscenium arch theatre, the show will enthrall thrill-seeking audiences.

This year’s Cirque Berserk! will see the return of its most famous – and most dangerous – act, the legendary ‘Globe of Death’, in which four motorcyclists defy gravity and risk life and limb traversing the inside of a spherical steel cage at speeds of up to 60 miles per hour. They will be joined by a magnificent company of over 30 jugglers, acrobats, aerialists, dancers, drummers and daredevil stuntmen from all corners of the globe, plus brilliant and hilarious physical comedy performers The Mustache Brothers!

Touring direct from London’s West End,  the production will play at the Theatre Royal, Plymouth, from Tuesday 8th to Saturday 12th May.  This is part of a nationwide 40-week UK tour, and coincides with the 250th anniversary of circus – a firmly British invention.
