Thank you for your interest in hosting Finding Magic at your venue or organisation.
Beverley Bishop’s new show uses a mixture of storytelling, humour, magic and film. It’s a deeply compelling piece of theatre that is moving, amusing and magical.
In her beautiful and poignant one-woman show Beverley explores her progression through grief and healing as she tries to understand her own bereavement journey whilst seeking to find her magic again.
What is the format of the production?
There are 3 options for you to choose from:
- A live in-person performance and Q&A at your venue
- A live online viewing of the performance and Q&A especially for a digital audience
- A live intro (in-person or online) with a film viewing of the production, followed by a live Q&A
What types of venues does it suit?
The show is ideal for small theatres, arts centres, libraries, village halls and community centres, conference halls and events venues.
What types of organisations does it suit?
The show is ideal for arts organisations, festivals, universities and local councils.
The show is also suited to charities and organisations supporting people bereaved or affected by suicide. It is ideal for staff and volunteer development and gives a unique perspective on life after loss.
What age is it suitable for?
The show and film version are suitable for ages 16+
What is the theme of the show?
The show takes the viewer on a journey through grief and covers suicide and mental health. However, the show is a story of love and hope as well as how people cope, and contains humour and magic.
Is there a trailer to share with attendees beforehand?
Yes. The official trailer can be found on YouTube: https://youtu.be/ZVo1jg4UBRA
The trailer, along with more information on the show, is on the Finding Magic page of the website: http://www.beverleybishop.com/finding-magic/
How long is the show?
There will be a 5-10 minute introduction, tailored to the audience, then the show or film will run for 60 minutes.
This will be followed by a Q&A session, timing for that will depend on numbers and the needs of the organisation, for instance, charities using the show to train volunteers may want a much longer Q&A session than a small theatre venue.
When is it available?
The show is available from April 2021 onwards and bookings are being taken now. Please do get in touch via the form below to discuss your requirements.
What has the feedback been so far?
You can see some of the feedback on the main Finding Magic page of the website.
The original show also included feedback research, in particular from those who watched a live performance or live stream of the performance and also watched the version created especially for a digital audience via Zoom. The full feedback report is available on request.
