If you can't go to the National Theatre in London, catch one of their productions -- like A Small Family Business -- streaming live to the big screen at Irvine Barclay Theatre. Penned by Olivier Award-winning playwright Alan Ayckbourn (Bedroom Farce, A Chorus of Disapproval), A Small Family Business premiered at the National Theatre in 1987 and scored the Evening Standard Theatre Award for Best Play. Jack McCracken's a man of principle in a corrupt world ... until he takes over his father-in-law's business. Soon after, a private detective armed with some compromising information approaches him, and Jack's integrity fades away as he discovers there are a few too many thieves and adulterers in his extended family.

I loved it! I didn't know what exactly to expect & it is hard to explain, but the illusions were wonderful, creative & thought provoking. I highly recommend it! Once you see it, I'm sure you will agree that it is indescribably delicious! What a delightful surprise!

WOW, that's all I can say WOW!
For a 5 person troupe to do so much amazing stuff, from climbing the curtains, fighting with a raincoat, alligator eating her leg & knitting it back on, a train going thru a person.... Wonderful performance, it...continued
Quotes & Highlights
“Fluid, sensual, stylish – sublime.”* *—The Times (London)
Step into a surreal theatrical world, where disbelief is suspended and nothing is what it seems. A smash hit in London and at the Spoleto Festival, _Aurelia’s Oratorio _is a magical whirl of visual illusions and trickery. Inspired by the magic of the music hall, variety and circus, this show stars Aurélia Thierrée, Charlie Chaplin’s granddaughter, and is created and directed by her mother Victoria Chaplin Thierrée (creator of Cirque Invisible). Actress, illusionist, and dancer, Aurélia takes us into an unforgettable realm of fun and fantasy, in a whimsical and yet sophisticated evening of theatre.
