Having toured the UK and America, winning multiple awards, this hugely successful family stage-show returns home as part of a European tour. 1909… in the shadow of Newport’s transporter bridge: Despite the hardship his family faces, a lowly dockworker's son, smitten by Harry Houdini, determines to emulate his hero and to follow a life of magic. His relentless ambition 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 reality weighs you down like mud? An enchanting story of childhood imagination, of the cynicism of adult life and of escape. A tale of hope and determination, packed with magic and wonder. A modern fairytale.
