Tomorrow (January 14) Simon Evans and David Aula present The Vanishing Man.

Hugo Cedar was an Edwardian magician known as The Vanishing Man he created the perfect trick and then disappeared forever, but his story lives on.

Directors and performers Simon Evans and Donmar Warehouse, team up to create a time-hopping, misdirection-abusing, mind-bending examination of what really happens when a man, in full sight of his audience, simply ceases to be.

This is the story of a magic trick: the greatest one ever performed.
