Mr. Swallow: Houdini - Soho Theatre On Demand | Thespie

In these worrying times of global pandemics and lockdowns, who better to lift your spirits than the eccentric tour de force that is Mr. Swallow, a man willing to pay the ultimate homage to Houdini himself by recreating the master’s legendary underwater escape. Mr. Swallow is joined by his trusty assistants, Mr. Goldsworth and Jonathan, as he charts his own imitable interpretation of Houdini’s life, fusing daredevil magic, hilarious comedy and a series of musical numbers. Mr. Swallow: Houdini will premiere on Soho Theatre On Demand via a live screening at 7pm on Wednesday 29th April and will be available to stream until 20th May, for a minimum donation of £4. All proceeds raised via the Soho Theatre On Demand release will go to charity, with 70% going to NHS Charities Together to support frontline workers leading the response to the Covid-19 emergency, with the remaining 30% put into a trust for comics most affected by the pandemic and the resulting financial instability.
