A Regular Little Houdini

  • The Headwaters Theatre (map)

Saturday, July 238pm


A tenacious boy from the docks idolizes Houdini and commits himself to a life of magic, but the harsh reality of working class life in Edwardian Britain gets in the way. He trains himself to emulate his hero’s escapology and his parents struggle to come to terms with their son’s eccentricity. As he matures our boy finds himself an integral part of the most terrifying events of British industrial history and his personal journey intersects with the world’s greatest showman himself. With his hero’s guidance, he fights in the mud and the filth, against the irrepressible tide of responsibility, to balance childhood folly and humanity with the cynicism of adulthood. A play of hope and magic!
