Circa is an outdoor theatre performance which will take you on a journey through Adelaide Botanic Garden's past.

Who is Circa? Remembering only her name, the character Circa wakes up to find herself flung into the modern era.  Her identity is unknown. It’s only by visiting places within the Garden to trigger her memories that she’ll rediscover who she is…

Based on a real-life, historical character and real events, you’re invited to join Circa on this immersive journey through Adelaide Botanic Garden and solve clues to uncover the mystery of her identity.

Don’t miss out on this site-specific, interactive, promenade theatre performance in the beautiful surrounds of Adelaide Botanic Garden.  Only 30 tickets per show!

Proudly presented by the Botanic Gardens and State Herbarium of South Australia.  Supported by the City of Adelaide.
