UNDER THE BIG TOP by Martin Follose 


The bank is going to foreclose on the Marlow Little Big Top Circus unless Mr Marlow can get the loan repaid  in three days. But Leo the Lion Tamer is afraid of lions, David Copperflood, the magician, is claustrophobic,  and Dipsey and Slipsey, the trapeze artists, are afraid of heights. Two burglars just stole the little bit of  money the circus had saved for the loan. The circus performers are all trying to ban together to put on the  biggest and best big top performance of their lives while trying to catch the circus crooks before Mr  Hawkins, the bank president, closes the circus. Step right up for memorable fun with characters like Tipsy  Toe- The Rope Walker, Bertha-The Bearded Lady and a host of other unique characters.
