In 1976 a bemused Iranian man arrives on a military jet in London. He holds nothing but a suitcase, a complicated past, and a love of backgammon.
Stunning acrobatics and a breathtaking live score are used to tell the story of Roshan, a charming but ultimately flawed man, and his numerous adventures in a foreign and often frightening land.
Backgammon becomes a seduction tool, cockney accents cause confusion and the Iran he once knew disappears after the Islamic revolution of 1979.
Following on from the huge success of The Hot Dots, the award winning So & So Circus bring you this not-to-be-missed show which is at once funny, touching and entertaining, featuring acrobatics as you have never seen them before.
