Going Down in Flames


  • Headwaters Theatre 55 NE Farragut St #9 Portland, OR United States (map)

What happens when a clown loses her mind?

The Circus Project is proud to fiscally sponsor Mankin Arts for their show Going Down in Flames, written and produced by Danny Mankin. Based on a true story, this original production started with the question "What if we write a play about a clown who gets dementia?" Through clown and physical comedy, Going Down in Flamces is both funny and tragic as we travel with Joan/Queenie Moon in and out of the circus ring and through her twisted version of reality.
