Houdini’s Greatest Escape

Don’t miss this laugh out loud adventure that will have you on the edge of your seat at death defying escapes, gasping as you witness incredible feats of magic and laughing out loud at some of the funniest 9 and let’s be honest weirdest characters you’ll see on stage this year, as New Old Friends pull of their greatest stunt yet in Houdini’s Greatest Escape.

Harry Houdini is the world’s greatest entertainer. Just as his death-defying escapology stunts have him, and his wife Bess, on the cusp of world-wide fame he is framed for murder by a gang of criminals in cahoots with the chief of police. Can Harry & Bess escape the plot and clear their names? And just how is their rival, Agatha, The Superstar Spiritualist medium, involved? All will be revealed in this hilarious 39 Steps-esque thriller, played out in New Old Friends’ (Crimes on Centre Court) inimitable, award-winning style of physical comedy, sparkling wit and just a touch of chaos.
