I imagine prison might be a lot like a circus — but not in the fun spectator kind of way; rather the caged, lonely elephant way. Local actor Eric Welch touches on this scenario in his first production he wrote with longtime friend Brian Walker, titled “Circus Circus.” The protagonist is arrested for having marijuana and sent to prison, where he becomes immersed in a world of degradation, chaos, violence and loss. The show will be accompanied by original music and video imagery on multiple screens. “Much like a circus, we have prepared a night of entertainment,” Welch says. “‘Circus Circus’ is a one-of-a-kind original play, and we hope those who come out will enjoy the show.” —Sara Havens
