Live Shows

Let the show begin!

A live show is a superb way of engaging your entire audience in a world of pure impossibility; a chance for them to sit back, relax and immerse themselves in a performance full of astonishment and wonder, a true escapist fantasy.

If you’re putting on a full theatre show, looking for something unique for your wedding or are hosting a party for friends and family in your living room, I have just what you need.

All my shows can be hired independently, but occasionally there will be public shows that you can buy tickets for. Watch out for our next public dates.
