Who better to lift your spirits right now than the eccentric tour de force that is Mr. Swallow, a man willing to pay the ultimate homage to Houdini himself by recreating the master’s legendary underwater escape, live on stage!

Mr. Swallow is once again joined by his trusty assistants Mr. Goldsworth (David Elms) and Jonathan (Kieran Hodgson) as he charts his own imitable interpretation of Houdini’s life, fusing daredevil magic (his words), hilarious comedy (also his words) and a series of musical numbers that are, frankly, to die for (…yep).

Written, produced and starring Nick Mohammed, this archive recording from January 2017 captures the gentle but often absurd comedy of the characters during a six week sell-out run at the Soho Theatre, which I enjoyed very much when I attended.

The show’s availability has been extended until June 27th.

This production is being made available for a minimum donation of £4 which will go towards NHS and actors’ charities.
