The Feathers conjure up a night of circus, music, improvisation and divination. Live audience tarot and clairvoyant readings guide our performers in this unpredictable tale, where all is possible, and everything unexpected. When the first card is turned our journey begins. Will the fool become the empress or the king lose his crown? Will the lovers be trapped in the caverns of the moon or the stars shine down on the hapless hanged man? You can shuffle the deck, you can lay down the cards, but the fates will dictate who will fly and who will fall.

Amazing show - fantastic atmosphere created by a strong and engaging cast and an incredible live band. It's brilliant to see a circus show with such a strong concept, and to have the chance to be able to take part as an audience member if you get picked for a reading! Would definitely recommend.

Meh... acrobatics were good and entertaining but there are better cabaret shows out there. The tarot readings depend on those audience members and how entertaining they are. However I must say the 2 strong women were great and the stars of the show, you go girls....

What a great show from a talented company. Amazing circus acts, fantastc live music and the tantalising element of chance makes this a totally unexpected experience. Great option for the end of a day at the fringe.
