"The best magic show at the Edinburgh Fringe 2017"

- World Magic Review

"An hour that will amaze and delight with a poignant and brave finale that will leave you thinking well into the night"

- Wee Review

 

Chris Cook thought he was in control of his life. Then, on New Years Day, he lost control of his car at 80mph. In that moment, it seemed like the space between life and death was decided by little more than luck. 

This show challenges the audience to step outside of their comfort zone and to face their fears head on. This is more than a magic show, it's an interactive experience. 

This show only has one aim. For everyone to leave the theatre better people than they came in. It's up to you if we achieve that...

"An excellent show, Cook's magic is creatively and skilfully performed. He captivates the audience with his tricks and wit. In the end, it is his modesty that is particularly charming... "   - World Magic Review

"An absolute master of the stage. His show is a testament to the captivating nature of skilful and surprising magic"   - BroadwayBaby

TWO SHOWS ONLY!

SUNDAY 13th May: 7pm & 8.30pm
