The Trick

About

"It makes no difference to me really whether you believe me or not.
People usually come here, it's my experience, when their old beliefs are not serving them very well."

The Trick is a magic show about getting older.

Mira lost her husband seven months ago, but just because he's died doesn't mean either of them are ready to let him go.

For most of her life Jonah has been Mira's reason to get out of bed in the morning. So when he does his final disappearing act, Mira can't quite believe her eyes. She knows she should be moving on. And yet, Mira finds herself caring less and less about the world outside.

The Trick is a magic show about the parts of life we don't talk about - the realities of getting older and coming to terms with loss. Ghost, goldfish, mediums, and slight-of-hand collide in this unpredictable exploration of ageing and grief by Eve Leigh (Stone Face, Silent Planet). This world premiere will be directed by award-winning Roy Alexander Weise (The Mountaintop, Nine Night).

Delightful but moving, with magic tricks to charm audiences throughout, The Trick is a beautiful meditation on ageing and grief.
