Houdini and Doyle hold The Last Séance

A new play is coming our way at the end of this month. The Last Séance by Jennifer Berman will play three performances at the Hudson Guild Theater as part of the New York Theater Summerfest at the end of this month. Houdini is played by Justin Chevalier. Below are details.

Against the backdrop of the early twentieth century, HARRY HOUDINI and ARTHUR CONAN DOYLE confront each other over the emerging phenomenon of Spiritualism. While devoted follower DOYLE embraces the ability to talk to the dead, HOUDINI becomes an anti-Spiritualist crusader. Can their friendship survive as the forces and faiths of this world, and the next, conspire to pull them apart?

Houdini and Doyle have certainly been popular with playwrights over the past few years. Below are links to a few other Houdini/Doyle stage adventures.

Thanks to our friends at the Houdini Museum in Scranton for the alert.
