“Fine, you want a fucking magic show, I’ll give you one!”
Ex-con and recovering alcoholic Shelley Hughes has found success late in life as a spiritualist medium. She invites you to take a seat and join her audience as she summons up the ghosts of your loved ones. But her own eventful past also haunts the evening, especially the recent disappearance of teenager Toby, the son of her former lover. Tonight it’s not just the dead who’ll be disrupting proceedings.
