Harry Houdini is so famous, he’s become a verb - Houdinise meaning to release or extricate one’s self from confinement, bonds or the like. Houdini toured Britain twice and both times, his special affection for Newport was to forge a love/ hate relationship with the police and common people of that trailblazing industrial hub. In those booming but bleak working-class docklands of Edwardian South Wales, an unusual young boy, obsessed with Houdini, is affected more than most by the arrival of his childhood hero. An extremely moving and thrilling one-man show about tenacity and hope in the face of adversity.
