A lowly dockworker’s son idolises his hero, Harry Houdini, and commits himself to a life of magic, but the harsh reality of working class life in Edwardian Britain gets in the way. With a head full of magic, our boy witnesses the most terrifying events of British industrial history. His personal journey collides with the world’s greatest showman himself, changing his life and the future of his community. How can you follow your dreams in a world where poverty weighs you down like mud? A beautiful one-man play about hope and magic!
