A site-specific, interactive, promenade theatre performance

The history of Adelaide Botanic Garden comes to life in Circa, an interactive live garden theatre show where the audience is both spectator and detective.

Performing for the first time in Australia, Circa is produced by Live History Production Company, a Canadian based theatre company which specialises in bringing local history to life.

Take a journey through the Botanic Garden's past and help uncover the mystery of Circa's identity.

Circa wakes up in Adelaide Botanic Garden unaware of who she is. But as she makes her way through the Garden, she starts to remember her past.

Based on a real-life, historical character and real events, Circa is a site-specific, promenade theatre performance in the beautiful surrounds of Adelaide Botanic Garden.

Come and join Circa this spring and help her solve the clues! Don't miss out only 30 tickets per show.

Choose from the following sessions:

Thursday 15, Friday 16, Saturday 17 and Sunday 18 November

Thursday 22, Friday 23, Saturday 24 and Sunday 25 November

Times: 2pm, 4pm, 6pm and 8pm each day.

Tickets are priced $10-32 per person and are now available through Eventbrite:

Early bookings are advised.

Circa is proudly presented by the Botanic Gardens and State Herbarium of South Australia. Supported by City of Adelaide. For more information on the production, please visit

Please Note:

The running time is between 50-70minutes, depending on how quickly Circa's identity is revealed.

This show is for an adult audience, however, it is also suitable for ages 13 and up.

This is an immersive show with an adventure/escape-room type feel. The majority of the show involves walking and standing. Those with limited mobility are encouraged to contact the venue to enquire about specific accommodation if needed. This show is accessible, however, some of the pathways may not be sealed.
