Join the devilishly eccentric Ada Campe for a performance celebrating a bygone era of razzmatazz featuring juggling, card tricks and mind-reading. After the 8pm performance, you’ll hear from Naomi Paxton, who plays Ada, about the role of women and suffragists in Edwardian theatre and feminism in modern magic.
