The people of the Freakshow are trapped. The show is their family, their home, and their livelihood rolled into one. While they all recognize the horror of their day-to-day existence, they are loathed to part with the show. It is what they know and it is what keeps them together. The spectacle of Freakshow will dazzle and discomfort the audience, but the heart of the story is about love, sacrifice and choosing to put others happiness above your own. This is a show that holds together the grotesque and the sublime so that we can look through that shared lens and see how very human we all are, no matter what we look like.
