Juanita's Big Problem

We have to listen to Juanita – because it’s time we cleaned up our act!

Join Circus 250 for a one woman clown interactive show about plastic pollution.

Juanita wants to lift the lid on your recycling bin. What should we do with all this plastic? Where does all that plastic we recycle actually go? What can we do to stop it? Juanita can’t answer these questions on her own – she needs you to help her. So she invites you to assist in fulfilling her quest for a plastic-free world. Clown Juanita tackles plastic pollution in a provocative, entertaining and ridiculous way.

An important, urgent and utterly hilarious show full of hope for our future.

Juanita’s Big Problem is an interactive environmental show by Ireland’s leading female clown Angelica Santander.
