The Vanishing Man

RLA_0493 CROP

“I’ve been able to work out, deconstruct and rebuild every trick I’ve ever seen. Except this one.”

Hugo Cedar was an Edwardian magician known as “The Vanishing Man”; he created the perfect trick and then disappeared forever, but his story lives on…

Directors and performers Simon Evans (‘The Dazzle’, ‘BUG’ and magical consultant to the NT, Old Vic and Donmar Warehouse as well as two-time recipient of the Close Up Magician of the Year award) and David Aula (‘The Cement Garden’, ‘Personal Enemy’, and ‘MEAT’), team up to create a time-hopping, misdirection-abusing, mind-bending examination of what really happens when a man, in full sight of his audience, simply ceases to be.

This is the story of a magic trick: the greatest one ever performed.

Produced with generous support from The Unicorn Theatre.
