Master of the Macabre

9th-11th March | 19:30

Tickets on sale from Sat 4 Feb. 

Following a hugely successful run at The Vaults, Waterloo, Benedict Barber is bringing Master of the Macabre to Hoxton Hall in March 2017.

Benedict Barber is a magician with a taste for the ghoulish and grisly.

In Master of the Macabre, he takes the audience on a dark autobiographical journey – from his introduction to magic at the age of just five through the trickery he employed at school to alarm his fellow pupils and terrorize his teachers to a shocking experience as a young adult that has shaped his life both on and off the stage.

This enticing theatrical experience will leave you wide-eyed with astonishment and bring you to the edge of your seat with fear. If you’re prepared to have your prejudices challenged, your assumptions questioned, your beliefs shaken and your nerves shredded then this is the show for you.

Master of the Macabre is – quite simply – the most terrifying magic show you will ever see…

‘A truly theatrical mixture of twisty plotting and illusion’ – Time Out

‘Undeniably clever’ – The Stage
