The eerie world of the Victorian seance parlour is to be revived as part of a show in The Anglican Chapel at Arnos Vale Cemetery.
The show features storytelling, magic and mind reading set within the context of Victorian Spiritualism. Sylvia's character and the Phantasmagorical show were devised by Careena Fenton, one of the few female members of the Magic Circle, inspired by Gothic art, films and literature as well as the female magicians and Spiritualists of the Victorian Era.
A scene from the show won first place at an American stage magic competition focused on mind reading and bizarre magical presentations, while Reece Shearsmith, League of Gentlemen writer and actor, described it as: "Timeless, elegant and beautifully Victorian. Brilliant!"
She said: "The show is aimed at those who enjoy their entertainment with a hint of the supernatural and emulates the uncanny thrills of the Golden Age of Spiritualism. It has been very well received wherever I've performed it around the world so I'm really looking forward to sharing it with an audience at Arnos Vale Cemetery, the perfect location for a show during the month of Halloween!"
The show is not suitable for children under the age of 16. The bar is open one hour before this performance, and there is no interval.
