Real Magic (UK)

To the sound of looped applause and canned laughter, three performers take part in an impossible quiz show - a mindreading experiment on repeat. One participant is blindfolded and can only win the game by guessing the word the other participant is thinking about. But what is the prize? Are the odds stacked so that there can only ever be losers? Who made up the rules? What is really at stake? Nothing? Or more than either the contestants realize, or we can comprehend?

Join in on a hallucinatory journey and look forward to a hilarious and maddening evening in the company of three actors from the legendary British group Forced Entertainment. The three actors take turns to slip into the role of both quiz master and candidate, where the aim of the game is to guess words. The result is an energetic performance that is deeply entertaining. The actors are locked in a puzzle where the answer is always just out of reach - even when staring them directly in the face.
