Linking Rings by Paul Zenon

£10.00

"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

"This is an emotional and theatrical performance and you may find it surprisingly touching, as I did. I’d recommend it to those that enjoy autobiographical one-man shows and intimate theater." Ryan Matney, Genii Magazine

"I encourage you to watch it. If you are interested in magic and another fellow magician's journey on how he got there, Paul's is so, so moving. A wonderful wonderful presentation." Wayne Fox, Wizard Product Reviews

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
