Truelove Tours The Terror Beneath The Boards A Darkly Comic Adventure for Grown-Ups from

East Anglian writer/performer Darren Gooding continues his exploration into the extraordinary, wondrous and occasionally downright ridiculous world of the most beguiling and mercurial of all Magicians for this brand new cycle of stage shows!

 Leopold Thorn: Conjuror (professionally), Liar (reputedly), Visionary Scientist (quite possibly) and Strutting Dandy (unquestionably), is facing his most daunting challenge to date; telling bedtime stories to entertain his decidedly precocious and resolutely insomniac six year old daughter...


An unspeakable Terror permeates Steinmann & Pennyflute’s Theatre of Magic... Can ultimate rationalist Professor Max Steinmann explain the seeming presence of a headless horror lurking beneath the boards, before his performers and stage crew resign en masse? What inexplicable fate has befallen Archibald Pennyflute’s prize pachyderm? Plus what does this all have to do with the rusted, padlocked crate which for ten long years Steinmann and Pennyflute have guarded with such grim resolution?


In this unquiet tale Leopold Thorn returns to the smoggy streets of Victorian London for a theatrical Odyssey of revenge, madness and vanishing elephants...


WARNING: THIS PLAY CONTAINS ADULT LANGUAGE AND MILD DISMEMBERMENT!


Duration: 1 hour 45 minutes; (including 15 minute interval).



But of course they’re all just flights of fancy aren’t they? No real person could ever experience such amazing adventures...

This epic cycle of interlinked romances will play out in a variety of venues across East Anglia throughout 2014 and 2015. From the romantic to the subversive, prepare to witness levitation, decapitation, and restoration in the idealistic, eccentric and charismatic company of the greatest Stage Magician Victorian London never knew…
