The Great Ridolphi
Edinburgh Fringe Festival 2017
Belly Button, Underbelly | Cowgate (Venue 61)
3 - 27 August, 1:25pm
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.
In a world of smoke and mirrors, in search of a man built around trickery and illusions, Victor unravels the mystery behind the illusionist extraordinaire The Great Ridolphi.
With an award winning team including actor Steve Turner (Dinner, Glengarry Glen Ross, A Streetcar Named Desire), writer Chris Isaacs (Flood, FAG/STAG, Old Love), and director Adam Mitchell (Next to Normal, When The Rain Stops Falling, Death Of A Salesman), this one man show will walk the line of mysticism and wonder.
A magical new work by indie sensation The Last Great Hunt.
From the co-writer of last year's Fringe World award-winning show FAG/STAG
"Isaacs' writing blends the mystical with the practical, and walks steadily down the line between illusion and reality throughout" (Cicely Binford)
"The Great Ridolphi shows the high quality of work that can be achieved within the confines of a Fringe season. ★★★★" (The West Australian)
