It is 1862 and the gaslights are flickering... Welcome to an evening of magic and illusion with the infamous brothers, Willy and Ira Davenport.

Inspired by the true story of the Davenport Brothers, this amazing play promises to be a true theatrical treat.

Join us to witness the wonder and mystery of the Davenports' dramatic demonstrations. In their presence, furniture dances, bodies levitate and the voices of the dead resonate through the theatre.

Discover the dark undercurrent to their Victorian world as the showmanship and drama of the brothers' onstage presence contrasts with their cruel and curious childhood.
