About the Show
EVERYONE YOU MEET IS PERFORMING A KIND OF MAGIC TRICK – PRESENTING THE PARTS OF THEMSELVES THEY WANT YOU TO SEE,
AND HIDING THE PARTS THEY DON’T,
Internationally acclaimed psychological illusionist Derren Brown announces a brand-new show UNBELIEVABLE, which plays at Colchester’s Mercury Theatre and Manchester’s Palace Theatre this summer, ahead of opening in London’s West End at the Criterion Theatre on 19 September 2023.
Following the extraordinary success of Derren’s recent production of SHOWMAN, UNBELIEVABLE will be a magic show like no other.
Fusing the best of theatre with jaw dropping illusions never before seen in the West End, UNBELIEVABLE features a New York Subway band and a company of multi-talented performers who will bring to life, live on stage, an evening of bewildering trickery, from the imagination of Derren Brown.
The show includes an updated version of a one act play not seen on the London stage in over 100 years! WILL, THE WITCH AND THE WOLFMAN, combines comedy, illusion and song to provide a breathtaking conclusion to an extraordinary evening in the theatre.
The ambition for UNBELIEVABLE is to create an experience you can’t get anywhere else in the world. From the moment the audience set foot in the theatre, they will be an essential element – indeed the beating heart of the show.
UNBELIEVABLE is created, written and directed by UK stage and screen phenomenon Derren Brown, and long-time collaborators Andy Nyman and Andrew O’Connor.
