Laura London – Cheat


Laura London is one of the world's leading close up magicians, and for the first time, Laura will be bringing her One-Woman show Laura london: CHEAT to The Magic Circle.

Laura first debuted 'CHEAT’ which she devised and wrote herself, at the Edinburgh Fringe 2016 and received four and five star reviews across the board. She has since then toured this show in the UK appearing at venues such as The Meridien Hotel, Piccadilly and Vaulty Towers, Waterloo, as well as tours of France and Germany and even taken the show to The Magic Castle in Hollywood and Moonlight Studios in New York.

The show reveals the incredible story of Geraldine Hartmann, a card shark, gambler, sleight of hand artist and of course a cheat in the 1920s. Geraldine’s passionate affair with poker, whiskey and a lover are told through the entries of her personal journal, as are the card cheating techniques she used to part the suckers from their money.

Laura will be sharing with you the secrets of how to cheat at cards using genuine techniques used by the hustlers of the time. Audience members will be invited to participate in this rare opportunity to see up close and personal into a world which is notoriously secretive.

Be enthralled and entertained as Laura London lays bare the life and secrets of one of the world’s few female card sharks.
