First Night

This scene is from a one-woman play called Liz’s Circus Story. The play is based on a young woman’s experience working for a small traveling circus. In this scene, with the circus’ first performance just hours away, Liz plans the order of the acts, recounting the difficulties the circus has faced getting off the ground.
