Circus Flora always has a thread of a story to pull the performances together. The title of this fall's production is The Trial of the Century. One of the performers was accused of stealing the costumes and the jugglers' clubs and something else I forget. Clarence Darrow this wasn't. The man on the left was the over-the-top defense counsel and the woman on the right the prosecutor. Why he came out wearing a giant cartoon mask of himself was never explained but it was funny.
