P.T. Barnum always knew how to put on a good show. But what happens when the drama concerns the real-life abduction of a four-year-old boy? Loosely based on a true story, The Lost Boy
explores what happens when family tragedy and Big Top spectacle collide. When his son is stolen by roustabouts, a father turns to the P.T. Barnum, the unmatched master of publicity, to outsmart the captors using newspaper headlines, trains and death-defying trickery. Soon other Barnum irregulars -- Tiny Tim, the Strong Man, a trapeze artist and a Circassian psychic -- join in on the act, if motivated by less-than-pure intentions. Meanwhile, as an actual media circus threatens to engulf everyone, a mother must figure out how to grieve. Susan Mach won an Oregon Book Award for this thrilling play that sends your heart racing, right before threatening to break it.
