THE MAN WITH THE GOLDEN HANDS

Just back from winning the Overall Best Magic Award at Adelaide Fringe Festival 2024. Stuart Lightbody tells the fascinating true story of John Mullholland, the magician who, in 1953, was recruited into the CIA. An enchanting mix of magic and storytelling, it’s an award winning show filled with impossible demonstrations of sleight of hand and mentalism. But as Stuart leads the audience through a dangerous game of cat and mouse, you might find yourself asking… who is trying to catch who?
