About the Show Less...

A rehearsed reading of a new play about the meeting of Arthur Conan Doyle and Harry Houdini. Read More >

Following the tragic deaths of his wife and son, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle devoted his life to spreading the word of spiritualism and his belief in ‘The Summerland‘. Then one night in 1920 he met Harry Houdini, the world’s greatest magician, whose own dark secret would push their extraordinary friendship to the brink and beyond.

Summerland uses the magic and mystery of Music Hall to bring to life an era in which death was no longer a one-way door.
