About this product
- DescriptionEverybody feels trapped sometimes - by our family, by our friends, by situations we can't control. But, who can we look to, to help us really escape? Inspired by Adam Phillips' book Houdini's Box , The Escapologist follows a psychotherapist as he delves into the conscious and unconscious desires of his patients. All of his patients are looking to escape in some way from their circumstances. But, how can the therapist help them when he feels increasingly sceptical about the powers of his profession? As his feelings of entrapment increase, he takes flight into fantasies about the greatest escape artist of them all, Harry Houdini. The Escapologist opens at the Tramway in Glasgow in January, 2006, featuring exciting re-enactments of Houdini's stunts in a production by Suspect Culture.
