Magic Circle

Written by Kim Newman

A sinister mystery for the stage by renowned novelist Kim Newman

Circa 1970– in a room in Calme Manor, bloodied by an appalling ritual, a protective chalk circle has been drawn. Inside the circle sits Professor Harry Cutley, a trendy academic and occultist, seemingly intent on undoing a dangerous spell cast by a former pupil. Outside the intangible barrier stands Inspector Nicholas Gammell, Nicker of the Yard, a rational detective with an unsolved case on his books and a suspect in his sights. Tonight, both men will seek answers to mysteries vast and colossal...

Directed by Harrogate Theatre's own Phil Lowe, this sinister two-handed mystery is the first full-length dramatic work for the theatre by renowned novelist Kim Newman, author of the critically acclaimed 'Anno Dracula' novels, starring award-winning actor/producer James Hyland and Michael Shon (of Brother Wolf's 'A Lesson from Auschwitz').
