"The spirit of Harry Houdini": play review by Clara Tolosa (2º BD)

A couple of weeks ago we watched the play call “The spirit of Harry Houdini”. Personally, I found the plot rather predictable, it is about a widow woman who had been trying to contact with her deceased husband (a magician) for 10 years. In order to fulfill her purpose she called the medium Arthur Ford. During the spiritualistic session many mishaps took place therefore they raise doubts on Arthur Ford’s truthfulness and also on the woman’s honesty. Eventually, the medium turned out to be a deceiving. 

One particular strength of the play is the acting, it is quite convincing. The woman gives a compelling performance as Bess Houdini (the widow woman). The medium provides a revealing insight into the tension created in the atmosphere. Moreover the soundtrack was gloomy (according to the atmosphere).

I would highly recommend it to anyone interested in magic or spiritualist, however, it keeps you attentive even if you are not interested in the topic so it is a definite must-see.
