      Creature Feature

      A circus for adults? That’s exactly what New Zealand’s Dust Palace serves up with The Goblin Market: breathtaking acrobatics mixed with nudity, naughtiness, and general debauchery. The artfully contemporary circus retelling of Christina Rossetti’s poem of temptation and salvation “Goblin Market” gets standing ovations everywhere it travels to around the globe. And seeing it within the intimate confines of the York should be eerily, mind-blowingly fun. Remember to watch out for the goblin!

      The Goblin Market is at the York Theatre from Tuesday (October 3) to October 14.
