‘Of course you take me away from the world, and who cares…. you’re the best reason I know to wake up.’

 

Mira’s husband, Jonah, died seven months ago, but that doesn’t mean that either of them are ready to let him go.

 

For most of her life Jonah has been Mira’s reason to get out of bed in the morning. So when he does his final disappearing act, Mira can’t quite believe her eyes. She knows she should be moving on. And yet, Mira finds herself caring less and less about the world outside.

 

The Trick is a magic show about the parts of life we don’t talk about – the realities of getting older and coming to terms with loss. Ghosts, goldfish, mediums, and sleight-of-hand collide in this unpredictable exploration of ageing and grief by Eve Leigh (Stone Face, Silent Planet). This world premiere will be directed by award-winning Roy Alexander Weise (The Mountaintop, Nine Night).

 

Director Roy Alexander Weise is the 19th annual winner of the James Menzies-Kitchin Award and directed his critically-acclaimed, sell-out production of The Mountaintop by Katori Hall at the Young Vic. He was shortlisted for the Evening Standard Emerging Talent Award 2018. Theatre credits include: Nine Night (National Theatre, and currently running at the Trafalgar Studios), Br’er Cotton (Theatre 503)/
