“Trick of the Light manage to conjure a truly rare thing;
a story about magic that actually feels magical."

- Uther Dean, The Wireless

Trick of the Light is a theatre company from Wellington, in Aotearoa New Zealand. We like making theatre that is playful, inventive, thought-provoking, and speaks to the here and now. Our previous shows have included The Road That Wasn't There, The Devil's Half-Acre, Beards! Beards! Beards!, The Bookbinder, and Tröll.
