The Death Act

$ 30.00

The Act revolves around the fear of being buried alive and the industry that sprung up as a result back in the 1800-1900's. You even show a couple artifacts from the time, a coffin glass and a coffin bell.

In the course of the Act a spectator consults with a crystal ball and answers their own randomly chosen question in a way that leaves no doubt that dark forces are at play (this is like nothing you have ever seen). The Death Card from the Tarot makes an unwelcome appearance. A coffin bell tolls. The spectator is pronounced dead in their own hands (must be seen to be believed)! Evidence of a spectator's imminent demise is revealed. All amid laughter and chills, screams and gasps. It's way too much fun.

It's dark. It's creepy. It's not for the youngsters, but it’s perfect for teens and older and lovers of horror movies and books. Poe would have loved it. It's frightening at times, humorous at other times. It's one hell of a roller-coaster ride. And it is one unfathomable mystery draped by another, draped by another, draped by yet another.

It's an entire Act. I get 11-12 solid minutes of bone-chilling entertainment out of this piece. You will have to accumulate all of the goodies needed to perform this (the 'Coffin Glass' being one of them, and complete instruction of how to construct your own is included) but it is SO worth it. If you love your Magick to be a bit on the dark side, yet so completely enjoyable and fun that your audiences will wish there was more, then this is for you.

Everyone who sees this act positively raves about it. Those fortunate few who have taken the time to put this together have told me stories of performances so gratifying it’s almost embarrassing. This is, quite simply, one of the strongest performance pieces I have ever created. I always get a huge reaction from it and endless discussion after the show. It simply doesn’t get any better than this.

Over 30 pages, saddle stitched in card covers.
