Solo Show A Regular Little Houdini Comes to Hollywood Fringe This June
by BWW News Desk - May 14, 2016

Set in the sprawling urban slums of the South Wales docklands at the turn of the last century; a coming of age story about a young boy from the docks who idolises Houdini and commits himself to a life of magic, but the harsh reality of working-class life in Edwardian Britain gets in the way. A tenacious dreamer, he trains himself to emulate his hero's escapology amongst the mud and rust of his industrial surroundings, charming those hard-working realists around him but putting himself and others in danger as he becomes more dettached from reality. His parents struggle to come to terms with their son's eccentricity and our boy struggles in the mud and the filth to, not only achieve his dream of becoming an escapologist, but to survive, in a ruthless Edwardian dock town. As he grows our boy finds himself an integral part of the most terrifying events of British industrial history and his personal journey even intersects with the world's greatest showman himself. A connection which will influence both characters till the end of their days. With his hero's guidance, he battles against the irrepressible tide of responsibility, to balance childhood folly and humanity with the cynicism of adulthood. (more...)
