Clown, archivist, and amateur scientist Albert Billows has built a time machine. Followed by the federal bureau of investigation, haunted by a bloodthirsty pachyderm, and inspired by a mysterious woman from a century earlier, Albert Billows escapes to the past in order to change the course of human history and finally do something useful with his life.
During the Summer of 2013 Miniature Curiosa embarked on a North American tour of 17 cities including Brooklyn, Key West, Santa Fe, San Antonio, Austin, and a bowling alley in Cleveland, Ohio. Tonight a Clown Will Travel Time received a Best of the Bay Award in 2013 from Tampa Bay's Creative Loafing.
Funding for Tonight a Clown Will Travel Time was provided by the Robert C Smith Fund and the Betsy R Clark Fund of the Pittsburgh Foundation.
