The Mysterious Gentleman is a play incorporating stage magic that explores the eternal question of what lies beyond death, told through the life story of mercurial magician JN Maskelyne.
The play brings back to the stage this man of contradictions, and 100 years after his death his story is story is still mesmerising.
Known as the father of modern magic in the Victorian era, he built his career by challenging fraudulent spiritualists and charlatans, as well as creating magical illusions that amazed Victorian audiences and still astonish people today.
