Scalding tea productions presents at the LOUNGE THEATRE in the heart of Hollywood’s Theatre Row:

A bold evening of mesmerism, clairvoyance, and thought-reading straight from the Victorian parlour! British scientist and sceptic Dr Mark Gasson demonstrates how the most prevalent myths of the Victorian psychics still define what we believe is possible and even challenge our very sense of reality.

Dr Mark Gasson, Neuroscientist and Guinness World Record holder by day, makes his United States debut by delving into the murky world of Victorian fakery, trickery and fraud. ‘Charlatan’ uncovers the scams and shams of the Victorian Psychics by bringing them back to life for a modern audience and revealing how we are still hardwired to believe against our rational judgement the lies and half-truths.

‘Charlatan’ is fueled by psychology and deception and relies on interaction with the audience to create unbelievable events that we choose to believe nonetheless.

Highly recommended to the ardent admirer of the English accent.

“Dr. Mark Gasson is pioneering…” – Morgan Freeman (yes, that one!)
