The Mysterious Gentleman
So rehearsals have finally started for this production. The script was written a few months back, but since then I've been working with the fabulous Jenny Wren Productions - director Jenny Wicks, and three brilliant actors to develop it further. Playing JN Maskelyne is an amazing actor and magician Peter Clifford. The sublime Mr Derren Brown says of him 'Peter Clifford is one of my favourite magicians and one of the loveliest people I know.' Peter has been busy creating incredible illusions for the play, and the other actors Elise Heaven and Murray Andrews have been busy learning all the magic they need to perform.
It's been a fascinating process writing and then adapting a script to include magic effects, but collaborating with a huge team of people is going to make this play really spectacular on stage. We've got a great team building all the effects, and our set designer has come to us after working on Game of Thrones, so it's going to look amazing.
There's been so much interest and support for this project all along, and tickets are selling well, but the BBC are going to do a feature next week so if you're thinking of coming I suggest you book before that goes out on the telly! Tickets only £10. Dates 8,9,10th May
