Hugo Cedar was an Edwardian magician known as The Vanishing Man; he performed the perfect trick and then was never seen or heard of again.
Director/performers Simon Evans and David Aula present a time-hopping, misdirection-busting, mind-bending examination of what really happens when a man in full view, simply ceases to be. So much more than a magic show, it is the story of a magic trick: the greatest one ever performed.
