Theatre // Coming up // Tiger Lady
13 October

Tiger Lady

Excitement, Danger and Very Sharp Claws! Roll up, roll up Ladies and Gentleman. Hear our deliciously funny and taunting true tale about Mable Stark, the Queen of the circus, the most ferocious female tiger tamer whose scars were as deep as her heart.

Imagine... It's the end of Summer 1915, Princeton Kentucky, and a young orphan girl runs away from her strict Presbyterian aunts to join the circus. Although adored for her dancing legs, she vows to become the first female tiger tamer. With a mix of clown, live music, some seriously bad acrobats and a very small tiger.

Dead Rabbits present this true tale of the price of fame, fervour and falling in love...

Tiger Lady won "Best Immersive Theatre" - Theatre Weekly Edinburgh 2022 and had excellent reviews:
