Magic War explored themes of war, strategy and deception through a script, gory magical illusions, old fashioned ladylike mime and Victoriana burlesque parody.
Olivier award winning showwoman and raconteur Marisa Carnesky (Carnesky’s Ghost Train, C’est Barbican and Jewess Tattooess) presented an evening of sneak previews of new writing and performances that were in development for her new one woman show.
Audience members were asked to volunteer and to join the temple of the Cult of Athena. Fuel produced the development phases of Magic War, which then went on to a full show which ran at Soho Theatre in 2007.
