Presented by Perth Theatre Trust and The Last Great Hunt

How do you hold on to the world’s greatest escape artist?

Ten years after the death of his father, Victor O’Meara is visited by detectives inquiring on the whereabouts of a missing Francesco Goya masterpiece.

Propelled by obscure items left to him, Victor seeks to uncover the truth behind his father’s involvement with one of the greatest art heists of the century and begins a quest that is part adventure, part mystery, and entirely enchanting.

As Victor delves further into his father’s past he finds himself in a place where witches fly, ghosts appear in windows, and the dead rise to the heavens. In a world of smoke and mirrors, in search of a man built around trickery and illusions, Victor unravels the mystery behind illusionist extraordinaire The Great Ridolphi.

With an all-star team including actor Steve Turner, director Adam Mitchell and writer Chris Isaacs, this award winning (Fringe World Martin Simms Award 2016, Blaz Award for new writing 2016, Fringe World WA arts editor award) one man show dances the line of mysticism and wonder. A magical new work by theatre sensations The Last Great Hunt.
