Résumé: Set in a travelling funfair, this is the story of the owner, Levi Lee, trying to come to terms with the loss of his wife while fighting off the attentions of Rosa, an over amorous gypsy future teller who foretells the danger and mysticism in his future. Levi also has to deal with his rebellious teenage son, Jack, who runs off with Alice, daughter of the East End gangster, Harvey. His other problems involve Slow Jonny, the sweet-natured simple boy he regards as a second son, and Druid, a psychopathic heavy. Dodgems and motorbikes, crafty cons and candy floss, fairground horses and fights, as well as unrequited love, romance and rock and roll bring out the carnival atmosphere in this world of fairground life

It received very mixed notices: “the most dismal of my theatregoing experiences”, “a blatant rip-off’, “pleasantly terrible, weirdly wonderful”, “sends us home on a nine-mile high”. The critics generally liked Shane Richie, but were unanimous in their praise for the young chorus boy-dancer, Simon Smith, saying he was the best thing in the show.
