Linking Rings by Paul Zenon


"A touching, deeply authentic, beautifully-made magic cabinet of theatre-story. Outstanding and unmissable." Fringe Review

"I found the performance and script to be engrossing and have a very easy time giving this performance a high endorsement." Straight Talk Magic

"Great delivery, great story line that is told in a very honest way by Paul. On a magical level I absolutely loved the theatrics and storyline of this, and on a theatre going level it is something I would definitely recommend non-magicians go see." Paul Romhany, *Reviews Vanish Magazine

A self-penned, semi-autobiographical theatre piece marking a distinct change of direction for Paul Zenon, award-winning magician, comedian and actor who, in a career spanning four decades, has performed in around forty countries and made literally hundreds of network TV appearances. By far his most personal work to date.

About the show - 'Houdini's right-hand man deals with the death of his boss. A half century later, a Blackpool joke shop proprietor takes on a wide-eyed young protege. An affectionate look at a misspent youth and unsung heroes. Not a magic show, but magical nonetheless.'

Running Time 1 Hr 7 Min
