A Regular Little Houdini

Monday, 6 March 2017 to Saturday, 18 March 2017

Newport, South Wales: A tenacious young dockworker's son, smitten by Harry Houdini's amazements, dreams of a life of magic to escape a suffocating, impoverished future and unlock his shackles; the brutal Welsh working-class reality of Edwardian Britain.

With his head full of folly, his parents struggle with their son's eccentricity but, he doggedly trains himself to emulate his hero on the industrial detritus in the bustling docks, and his relentless ambition finally brings him face-to-face with the world's greatest showman along with one of the most terrifying events in British industrial history.

Is it possible to follow one's dreams in a world where poverty weighs you down like mud? An enchanting story that blurs the lines between childhood imagination and the cynicism of adulthood. An extraordinary tale of hope, determination & magic!

A multi-award winner at Hollywood & San Diego Fringes and an Edinburgh Sell Out.

5 STARS- "A Regular Little Houdini artfully brings a little-remembered slice of history to life – with a laugh, with a cry, and a gasp of amazement. It proves one of the most heart-warming and transporting shows on offer this Fringe season"
