But, when a face from the past turns up and some painful memories are unearthed, they’re forced to ask, what’s the point of success? And what does it really mean to have talent?

Vincent Gambini's This is not a magic show - London

May Dates

Forget everything you know about magic and magicians. Now remember it all again. Vincent Gambini's 'This is not a magic show' is a performance of and about sleight-of-hand magic: its invisible mechanics, its clichés, and what it tells us about live theatre and make-believe. In a conversational yet crafted approach, Gambini presents astonishing close-up magic that invites us to question how enchantment and wonder are produced within a theatrical situation. Possibly the first of its kind, Vincent Gambini's 'This is not a magic show' is part performance-lecture, part deconstructed showbiz, and part magic tricks that leave you, like, omg. Tuesday to Saturday 24th-28th May at 9pm. Tickets £12/£10. Box Office: 020 7419 4841 www.cptheatre.co.uk Venue: Camden People's Theatre (Euston), 58-60 Hampstead Road, London NW1 2PY (Map) www.vincentgambini.com.
