through Last Ditch Wish, Kicken gets more than he bargained for. As
characters from the book come to life and Kicken crosses the threshold between
reality and fantasy, he learns that nothing is ever what it seems. Taking
its cue from the beloved Harry Potter and Lord of the Rings books, The Magic of Mrs.
Crowling is for lovers (and haters) of fantasy

"Silliman has created a
fantasy world that isn't the expected genre parody of Harry Potter in-joke
fest, but a real and interesting place that bears revisiting."
"This satisfying (play) ranges
from pitch black comedy to oddly moving."
"If you've ever used your
imagination, this rough and riotous (show) is for you."
