The world premiere of Unbelievable, prior to the West End!
Written and directed by Derren Brown, Andy Nyman, and Andrew O’Connor.

Everyone you meet is performing a kind of magic trick – presenting the parts of themselves they want you to see, their ‘effect’ and hiding the parts they don’t, their ‘method’.

Internationally acclaimed psychological illusionist Derren Brown announces a brand-new show UNBELIEVABLE, which premieres in Colchester, prior to opening in London’s West End.

Following the extraordinary success of Derren’s recent production of SHOWMAN, UNBELIEVABLE will be a magic show like no other.

Fusing the best of theatre with jaw dropping illusions never before seen in the West End, UNBELIEVABLE features a New York Subway band and a company of multi-talented performers who will bring to life, live on stage, an evening of bewildering trickery, from the imagination of Derren Brown.

The ambition for UNBELIEVABLE is to create an experience you can’t get anywhere else in the world. From the moment the audience set foot in the theatre, they will be an essential element – indeed the beating heart of the show.

UNBELIEVABLE is created, written and directed by UK stage and screen phenomenon Derren Brown, and long-time collaborators Andy Nyman and Andrew O’Connor.

Be among the first to see the World Premiere of this theatrical experience before it goes to the West End.

Please note: Derren Brown will not be appearing live in the show.
