PAUL ZENON in 'LINKING RINGS' at the Epstein Theatre
‘1926: Houdini's right-hand man deals with the death of his boss. A half century later, Blackpool joke shop proprietor Bill Thompson takes on a wide-eyed young protégé.
Linking Rings is an affectionate look at a misspent youth and unsung heroes; a touching true story of interlocking lives. Not a magic show, but magical nonetheless.'
Paul’s self-penned semi-autobiographical theatre piece has had successful runs at the Brighton and Edinburgh Fringe Festivals, Jermyn Street Theatre in London’s West End and most recently at Blackpool, where it was the hit of the Magicians Convention. It received 5 star reviews in the Edinburgh Evening News, The List, and Fringe Review.
‘A touching, beautifully-made magic cabinet of theatre-story….
Zenon is the perfect raconteur...
Outstanding - you’d be a fool to miss it.’ - Fringe Review
