Review by Howard Loxton
'Introducing some of Maskelyne’s illusions adds a fascinating extra dimension to Kasia Różycki’s production and they are performed with skill.'
Review by Simon Scott
'The play is written with a gentle wit, be it in the friendly chiding between George and Maskelyne, John Nevil’s contemplation that his lasting legacy will have more to do with public conveniences than conjury, or his delight at being described as a self-publicist.'
5/5***** 'A wonderful play, with a well-balanced combination of humour, magical skills, feelings, and wonder. A fast paced, but very well written dialogue. Great, competent cast, and a real story, well worth to have been resurrected. Not to be missed.' Francesca
'Altogether a very interesting gem.' Stephen & Maria
