Daisy and Alex of Gossamer Thread Circus brought us another first-rate evening of varied cabaret entertainment and escapism. As well as some brilliant new routines of their own they held a night at Norwich Playhouse which was compered by Joe Black and featured visits from burlesque artist Betsy Rose who performed two excellent acts, and the quite astonishing Rod Laver who did the most incredible things with playing cards and ping pong balls! Truly had to be seen to be believed.
Fresh from a recent appearance at the Spiegeltent for the NNF17 Daisy had an amusing and inventive new routine with the hoops and a breathtaking finale on aerial chains. Alex, as ever, was mind-bogglingly brilliant mind-reading, and most amusing with it too.
