Film £4 / Suggested donation £6*
In these worrying times of global pandemics and lockdowns, who better to lift your spirits than the eccentric tour de force that is Mr. Swallow, a man willing to pay the ultimate homage to Houdini himself by recreating the master’s legendary underwater escape (and you thought your lockdown was bad??)
Mr. Swallow is once again joined by his trusty assistants Mr. Goldsworth (David Elms) and Jonathan (Kieran Hodgson) as he charts his own imitable interpretation of Houdini’s life, fusing daredevil magic (his words), hilarious comedy (also his words) and a series of musical numbers that are, frankly, to die for (…yep).
‘One of the most incontrovertibly hilarious hours in town.’
‘A spellbinding feat of comic perfection.’
Produced by Nick Mohammed, The Pleasance, Soho Theatre and United Agents, Mr. Swallow: Houdini played a sold-out six week run at Soho Theatre in January 2017. This is an exclusive archive recording of the show filmed during the original run
Soho Theatre On Demand. The best shows from London’s most vibrant producer of new theatre, comedy and cabaret.
