Nyon circus school
On Saturday 29th May at 20:30 and Sunday 30th at 17:00 L’elastique Citrique (the circus school in Nyon) will be presenting a show by a London-based company called “Like the rain when it stops”. Performing in this London based company is an ex pupil from the Nyon school. The circus school is just next to the car parking in Place Perdtemps and two minutes from the train station. Based on previous performances this should be a superb show.

Synopsis – A modern parable about growing up and growing old and combines humour, drama, poetry and passion. In an old manor house on the Sussex downs, an aging London hostess struggles to control her unruly granddaughter and her equally unmanageable garden. When she hires a new governess for the child, she opens the door to more than she bargained for. However, help often comes in unexpected disguises and dark, brooding secrets may resolve themselves in happy endings! First night patrons may join the cast
for a glass of bubbly after the show. Tickets – CHF 28.- (seats are numbered).
