Devil in the Deck is the best magic show at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe.
From the creators of The I Hate Children Children's Show comes a story of magic, danger, romance, and life in search of redemption.
Dealing cards and cheating death... Devil in the Deck is the story of Jack Swindle.
Cursed by a gypsy fortune-teller, con-man Jack Swindle travels the world in search of love, magic, adventure and a cure to the curse.
Based on the real life adventures of magician Paul Nathan (HBO, MTV, BBC), Devil is the critically acclaimed show that swept San Francisco’s underground theater scene last year. Original music by guitarist John Anaya (Grammy board member) and directed by award winning actor/director Drew Letchworth (Mrs Doubtfire & The Right Stuff)
Devil in the Deck pulls you into Jack's life, where you experience every sensation first hand. As Jack runs with the bulls in Pamplona, you run next to him and feel the vibration of the hoofs through the cobbled streets. You feel the heartbreak of every loss and the exhilaration of every win. And you realize-all you want to do is play his game.
Magic, Music, and Theater collide in Edinburgh's most romantic adventure.
This innovative pairing of magic and theatre gives the audience a fascinating ‘bird’s eye view’ of the character’s card magic right as it happens, with an overhead camera and video projector bringing the audience a rare view of the skill and beauty involved.
"Devil" is an elegant blend of stories, music, and enthralling close-up magic. "The card tricks alone are worth the ticket price." Contra Costa Times.
