Death can be scary. So can clowns. But what if they weren't? Clown siblings Victoria Frank, and Mango mourn the loss of their mother by daring to find joy. It's OK to laugh at this funeral, and it's OK to cry at this clown show.

 

 

"The intriguing physicality employed by [Box of Clowns] is the real gem of the show, communicating far more about their characters than the sparse and simple dialogue scattered throughout it..."

Jamie Hale, The Oregonian

 

The trio is reminiscent of the Three Stooges but there work is more personal and moving… It is a show of sharp, beautifully-timed, elegant, physical comedy that displayed flexibility, trust, and incredible commitment and energy.”  

Karina Billesberger, Plank Magazine

 

"Infectiously joyful."

Show Length: 1 hour

 

Synopsis:  A mysterious trunk sits on the peak of a mountain at the end of the universe. Out of the trunk come the clown siblings Victoria, Frank, and Mango. The show is filled with acrobatics, slapstick, and mischievous antics- all for dear, old Mom. While clinging desperately to their memories, the three siblings cling to each other, literally, as they teeter on the edge their tiny stage, surrounded by the vacuum of space. Nothing is ever simple for the clowns, least of all scattering remains. While trying to fulfill Mother’s last wishes, the clowns blast tradition and make a giant, ashy mess.
