Magic Circle

A Brother Wolf presentation in collaboration with Harrogate Theatre
Written by Kim Newman, produced by James Hyland, directed by Phil Lowe, music by Chris Warner, costume design by Charlene Braniff

Circa 1970 – the Dawn of the Age of Ophiuchus, as faddish mysticism becomes something more dangerous. In a room in Calme Manor, blooded by an appalling ritual, a protective chalk circle has been drawn. Inside the circle sits Professor Harry Cutley, 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…

This sinister two-handed mystery play 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’).
