THE CABINET OF LEOPOLD THORN

THE CABINET OF LEOPOLD THORN

5th October 2011


The creator of ‘Manly Truelove’ turns literary detective to perform this extraordinary story of ambition, loss, scandal and deception which took place in the obsessive, clandestine and occasionally ridiculous world of 19th Century Stage Illusion... So prepare yourself for an evening of sleights, misdirection and SteamPunk Victoriana as Darren unwraps the mysterious life of Leopold Thorn: Illusionist (professionally), Murderer (reputedly), Scientific Genius (quite possibly) and Strutting Dandy (unquestionably) and attempts to answer the question of how a man who invented the greatest illusion ever known was so comprehensively erased from the history of stage magic...

WARNING – THIS PLAY MAY CONTAIN CARD TRICKS...

£6 / £3.50 concs
Doors open 7.30pm, show starts 8pm.
