Project Description

The Assistant’s Revenge

The Assistant’s Revenge is a brand new theatrical production, for older children (7+) and adults, from multi-award winning theatre company, Cahoots NI.

Created by Paul Bosco Mc Eneaney, Charles Way  and Ursula Burns.

A phone rings in the dead of night. Sam Sullivan, a small-time Private Eye hears a frightened voice on the end of the line. 

‘Someone’s trying to kill me’

The voice leads him to a strange travelling show at the edge of town where he meets Felix, an escapologist, and his assistants Molly and Crystal, one of whom appears to have murder in mind. Sullivan is plunged into a world of danger and deceit in a case with more twists and turns than a ten inch corkscrew. 

Expect music, glamour, magic, death-defying escapology and even a little…murder.
