Magician and actor Ali Cook heads to Sudbury with new show
Magician and actor Ali Cook – known for performing big tricks in tight spaces – is bringing his new show Principles of Deception to Sudbury.
The show takes its name from Arthur Buckley’s 1948 book Principles and Deceptions, which was the first book to categorise every style of magic.
Ali, who has starred in the West End illusion show Impossible, uses his skill as a historian of deception to break the magician code by performing every type of magic described in Buckley’s book.
The show is a curious combination of sleight of hand alongside grand stage illusions.
In addition to comedy and illusion work, Ali has also starred on TV in ABC Murders (BBC1), Emmerdale (ITV) and Mr. Selfridge (ITV), as well as film roles in the political satire How To Sell A War (2018), In The Cloud (2017) Kajaki (2015), The Anomaly (2014) and The Messenger (2015).
Suitable for ages eight and over, Principles of Deception is at the Quay Theatre in Sudbury on Friday, October 26.
Tickets are £14 and visit the Quay Theatre’s website to book.
