    Drama

    They travel from town to town, carrying their circus tent with them, their show packed in their bags. They bring fantasy and disorder into our lives. They are ogres, giants. They have eaten up men, women, children, hours of theater and miles of road. Proudly eccentrics, they live like a tribe, mixing family, work, love and friendship, without holding anything back. But the return of an old flame and the imminent arrival of a baby reopen wounds that they thought had healed. No matter, the ogres would always rather bite than admit they are wounded. So let the party begin!
