About this show

How To Be Sawed in Half is an adult play with complex magic and enchantment that goes spectacularly awry when the assistant Calibana rebels against her magician, Prospero (the deposed Duke of Magic), and tries to take over the show. Sleights-of-hand meet slips of mind as the two perform tricks of memory and make illusions disappear in this verbal and visual journey through a fading master's final attempt and his assistant's final surprise.
