Burt Turtle's Amazingly Big Top has been in the family for generations. Acrobats and clowns, fire eaters and freaks, stilt men, trapeze artists and uptight tightrope walkers they've come and gone down the years. But throughout and through all, the circus has remained, the circus has endured. The Big Top goes up; the Big Top comes down; from town to town, the show goes on, always the same. Roll up, roll up!
But for how much longer? Times they are a-changing, and what was once is not now so; the new order wants its day. There's big money to be made and lucrative contracts to be signed, if the old guard can be persuaded to leave. And the old guard starts with Burt himself, a man who's overstayed his welcome. Perhaps he will go peacefully; that would be best. But if he refuses to oblige? Well, as everyone is aware, the circus can be a dangerous place if you're not prepared...
You know, sometimes there's more happening outside the Ring than there is in it! Ladeez and Gennulmen, Kiddies and Creeps let the show begin!
