'Conjuring the Dead' by Foster the Mindreader

Paul Foster, a.k.a. Foster the Mindreader, recently presented his Houdini-themed show Conjuring the Dead at the Durham Fringe Festival. I'm sorry I didn't learn about this until it was past, but I still wanted to give it a shout-out for the record.

Step back in time and experience the dark world of the theatrical seance. This extraordinary piece of theatre explores a little-known story which took place in Harrogate in 1921 when the creator of Sherlock Holmes, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle and escape artist, Houdini, took part in a séance.  
During this hour-long show, renowned paranormalist, Forster, guides you on a journey through time. Part lecture, part performance; Forster shares his research, experiments, stories, objects, history, and spine-chilling demonstrations which will delight and challenge you.

Seems like Houdini plays are really making a comeback post Covid. If you have a Houdini play booked to appear, please let me know. I'm always happy to help spread the word.
