What I liked

AN ABSOLUTELY FIRST RATE PERFORMANCE AND ONE OF THE BEST SOLO SHOWS OF THE FRINGE,
MY FULL REVIEW WILL BE APPEARING IN BITTER LEMONS, BUT THIS ONE IS A TRUE GEM.

What I didn't like

THAT IT DOESN’T HAVE MORE REVIEWS

My overall impression

Daniel Llewelyn-Williams’ one man show, A Regular Little Houdini is an enchanting blend of history, tragedy and magic.
Set in his home town of Newport, South Wales during the Edwardian era, Llewelyn-Williams’ coming of age story of a little boy who idolizes the escape artist Harry Houdini draws on actual events from the town past. It is this legitimacy and Llewelyn-Williams’ all too apparent love of his birth place that give an added luster to an all ready stunning performance.
Joshua Richards’s sharp and skilled direction and Meg Cox’s lovely music play no small part in the show’s success as well. A definite: GOLD

'Til Death...

A night of celebration. A stunning revelation. A bond's cessation. Happy Anniversary, Kev & Steph. After tonight, things will never be the same.

Prepare to take a journey through an uncommon relationship. Mara lived as male most of her life. Mimi grew up in a traditional Catholic family. They met, fell in love and got married. And everything changed. For both of them.
