A multi-award winning show! Edwardian Newport, South Wales: A dockworker’s son, smitten by Harry Houdini, dreams of a life of magic.

His parents struggle with their son’s eccentricity; but doggedly training himself to emulate his hero on the industrial detritus, his relentless ambition finally brings him face-to-face with the world’s greatest showman – and one of the most terrifying events in British industrial history. Is it possible to follow one’s dreams when poverty weighs you down like mud? An enchanting story that blends childhood imagination with the cynicism of adulthood. A tale of hope, determination and magic!
