The Theatre Royal in Nottingham is the setting for Derren Brown to perform his latest hit show, from May 19-24.

The multi-award winning acknowledged master of psychological illusion is back on tour with his smash-hit one-man show Derren Brown: Infamous.

With 128 dates across the UK, including a week at the Theatre Royal Nottingham, the show demonstrates why Derren is one of the world’s most renowned live performers, a dark manipulator of magic and mind control.

Derren Brown commented: “After six months of touring a much more personal show - quite a ‘brave’ move away from the template of previous shows - it’s been hugely rewarding to repeatedly hear audience members and critics say it’s the best show yet. I can’t wait to get it up and running again”.

Critics and the public have been universal in their praise for what has proven to be Derren’s most ‘heartfelt’ show and audiences have flocked from around the world to be part of this unique theatrical experience.

Infamous is Derren Brown’s sixth show since 2003. Since then, he has toured every year and been watched by an estimated audience of over one million people.

He has won two prestigious Olivier Awards, for Something Wicked This Way Comes (2006) and Svengali (2012), and confesses that performing live is still his favourite thing to do.

Infamous is produced by Michael Vine, Andrew O’Connor and Corrie McGuire for Objective Talent Management.

Directed by Andy Nyman, written by Derren Brown and Andy Nyman, the performance is not suitable for children under 12 years of age.

The performance of Derren Brown: Infamous gets under way at 7.30pm.

Tickets to see it are £37.50-£30.
