A Disappearing Act

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 his assistant very clear instructions for his memorial. Join Philip's family and friends for one final disappearing act.

Incorporating magic, music and physical comedy, A Disappearing Act is an interactive, immersive show where the audience takes part on stage as mourners attending a memorial service for a deceased magician.

A comedy about how we want to be remembered and what we hope people will forget, A Disappearing Act explores our mortality, the rituals we use to accept it, say goodbye and remember the ones we love.

Praised for its unique style, this witty and inventive piece of original theatre has been enjoyed by audiences across Scotland, Northern Ireland and the US.

Come take part in a memorial you won’t forget. Seating is limited.
