The great magician, Philip Winterbottom, cordially requests your presence for his final act. Sadly, he’s dead. So…he won’t be there. But, he’s left his son and assistant very clear instructions. Join Philip’s family and friends for one final disappearing act.Combining magic, music and audience participation, The Disappearing Act is an interactive, immersive, two-person show that casts audience members as mourners taking part in a memorial service for a deceased magician.
A comedy about the end of life, The Disappearing Act explores our mortality, the rituals we use to accept it, say goodbye and remember the ones we love.
“A Disappearing Act reflects on cultural attitudes toward death, but rejects the grim solemnity of a funeral dirge. Instead, the interplay suggests the endless depths of poignancy, mystery, and even merriment to be found in mortality.” City Pages, Minneapolis
Recommended Age: 12yrs+
Please note: The layout for this performance will be traverse style – a form of staging where the audience is on either side of the acting area.
