An enchanting story that blurs the lines between childhood imagination and the cynicism of adulthood. An extraordinary tale of hope, determination, and magic!
Newport, South Wales: A tenacious young dockworker's son, smitten by Harry Houdini's amazements, dreams of a life of magic to "escape" a suffocating, impoverished future and unlock his shackles—the brutal Welsh working-class reality of Edwardian Britain. Is it possible to follow one's dreams in a world where poverty weighs you down like mud?
A Regular Little Houdini is written and performed by Daniel LLewelyn-Williams and directed by Joshua Richards. Original music is by Meg Cox. Magic was created by Adrian Solar and Tom Silburn.
