A story celebrating the trials + tribulations of the great illusionist
If there were an award for world’s unlikeliest friendship, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle and Harry Houdini would win in a landslide. The Sherlock Holmes creator and legendary illusionist, who were opposites in upbringing as well as height, were brought together and torn apart by their shared interest in spirituality. Now the Axis Company, with the help of Houdini scholars, are examining their fascinating story in play form and even recreating some of the magician’s most famous tricks. You’re in for a treat. Best available seating allocated by the venue on arrival. Over 16s only.
"...a mesmerizing stage picture that feels like a portal to the present."
