Part adventure, part mystery, and entirely enchanting, The Great Ridolphi is a magical theatrical tale.

The latest work from West Australian contemporary powerhouse The Last Great Hunt (It's Dark Outside, The Adventures of Alvin Sputnik: Deep Sea Explorer), combines their trademark visual flair with an enthralling new script by Chris Isaacs.

A recent multi-award-winning highlight of Perth’s Fringe World Festival 2016, this is the story of one man’s journey through a world of smoke and mirrors in search of the truth behind his late father, an illusionist extraordinaire. 

How do you hold onto the world's greatest escape artist? Propelled by possessions left behind by Victor’s father, the late illusionist The Great Ridolphi, Victor embarks on a quest to uncover his father's past.


“It’s a taut, swiftly-paced noir adventure that holds many treasures in its smoke-filled confines, with eccentric characters, magic tricks, hidden clues and train journeys across Europe. Turner gives a command performance.” (Perth Arts Live)

“I was expecting a quality show, but what they have given us is just another realm.” (Independent Theatre Associates)
