The Dope Show

Posted By on April 20, 2010


The space this show took was over 90 feet in length. Inside it was a que line walk around. The back of each semi opened up forming the side, and turning it into an awning and from that a back side wall. The show consisted of graphic morgue photos of people that died from an over dose of narcotics. Also under several glass cases there were different types of paraphernalia used by those who were addicted. The Dope Show made it’s point and maybe it did help some. The show only lasted two seasons with the Siebrand circus and carnival most likely because it was a shocker and somehow the truth is uncomfortable.
