Lyre: A Theatrical Séance - Bondi Festival arrow-leftarrow-rightmagnifying-glassshare-iconshopping-cart-iconstar-iconuser-icon

“Ethereal, atmospheric magic that genuinely terrifies you. I’ve been so excited about this show since our first phone chat around what Harry was dreaming up. This is magic, but not as you know it.”  Rachel Chant, Festival Director

Lyre: A Theatrical Séance takes place at a hidden location, far away from the safety of a theatre.

Step aboard the bus and meet your guide, who is waiting to whisk you away to a secret location – where a group séance is taking place. Equal parts terrifying, hilarious and ridiculous, this magic show asks you to confront the ghosts that hide in plain sight – and those hiding ever-deeper in your mind.

“Make sure you get the chance to spend an hour with this excellent showman. I couldn’t decide whether I wanted to shake him by the hand or burn him at the stake.” ★★★★★ Broadway Baby

“Hilarious.” Sydney Morning Herald
