Imprisoned with the Pharaohs online reading, Feb. 1

A special dramatic reading of Houdini's "Imprisoned with the Pharaohs" will be presented online by Matthew Wood on Wednesday, February 1 at 19:30 GMT.

Join Edwyrdian Tales for an evening of enthralling storytelling where Harry Houdini, the great escape-artist and magician, faces his most daring and terrifying feat of escapology deep beneath the sands of the Egyptian desert… 

In 1910 Houdini and his wife travel to Egypt in search of the picturesque and the mystically impressive. But what they find leads down a dark path of adventure, incarceration and ancient mystery. Their curious guide Abdul Reis al Drogman draws Houdini to a duel for honour atop the Great Pyramid of Giza itself. The escapologist soon finds himself ensnared in a trap and cast down a near-bottomless hole under the Great Sphinx – an entity older and stranger than even the dark Gods of the Pharaohs. Houdini is trapped in a desperately real race against time to free himself from the sandy prison that might become his own tomb…
