Running time 55 minutes.
“Can we have ice cream for dinner? Pleeease!?! Or what about we invite Taylor Swift over? Pleeease!?!” Does any of this sound familiar?
It’s all in the way we ask. Pretty, Pretty Please? takes us on a roller coaster ride through the questions, answers, challenges and discoveries of how children ask for what they want! Join Flipside’s young circus artists in a spectacular account of the secrets and tactics of questioning, and without any adults getting in their way!
This production is part of the ongoing evolution of Flipside Circus to be the best placed youth circus company delivering a model of contemporary circus in which young people have agency and ownership.

“These kids, some as young as 11, are amazing and have all the skills and stage presence of the veterans of the circus arts.” – Susan Hetherington
