Derren Brown Svengail @ The Waterside Theatre, Aylesbury

Published by: Yvonne Delahaye on 29th May 2012 | View all blogs by Yvonne Delahaye


With an intriguing set that could belong to a mad scientist (you half expect to see Frankenstein wandering around) and some thumping music, the stage is set for a night of mystery, magic and wonderment.

Dubbed a 'psychological illusionist' by the Press, Derren Brown is a performer who combines magic, suggestion, psychology, misdirection and showmanship in order to seemingly predict and control human behaviour, as well as performing mind-bending feats of mentalism.

For the past ten years Derren has created TV and stage performances that have stunned audiences, debunked the paranormal and encouraged many to improve and enhance their own mental abilities. His first show appeared in 2000, Derren Brown: Mind Control, and followed with Trick of the Mind, Trick or Treat and a series of Specials including the controversial Russian Roulette and the hugely popular Events.

The audience were asked not to divulge the content of the show, so I can’t reveal what actually happened last night.  I can tell you though that it was an incredible night’s entertainment, with Derren as an expert showman keeping us all captivated and trying to guess - just how does he do it?!!!

Following his sell-out performances across the UK, Derren is at The Waterside Theatre until Saturday 2nd June.  To book tickets go to:

    Lol, swearing the audience to secrecy makes the job of a Reviewer quite difficult! Well done, Yvonne (and thanks for the Ambassador ticket link)
