So & So Circus presents Backgammon for Beginners

A fabulous fusion of acrobatics, puppetry drama and live music

So & So thrilled audiences last time they were here with their gravity-defying acrobatics. This new show is based on the remarkable true story of an extraordinary Iranian man who fled to London in 1976. His attempts to fit in to his new life lead to his introducing backgammon to London bars, facing the terror of the National Front and stopping trains with his bare hands, secret loves and broken hearts.

"An ambitious and moving show" - The Guardian

“An exquisite harmony of acrobatics, storytelling and music, which teeters constantly at the exhilarating brink between virtuosity and real danger, actor and character and fiction and reality.” Exeunt Magazine

“A thrilling atmosphere and visual and aural experience, examining the confusion of multiculturalism.” **** One Stop Arts
