The Great Mesmerizer, an insightful stage hypnotist, is pressured by his manager to add a stereotypical “lovely assistant” to spice up his show. But the zippy, witty woman he hires is anything but a stereotype. And she spices up his life in a very different way than he expected....
Inspired by the Bronte sisters' epic romance novels, The Maid & The Mesmerizer follows the volatile ups-and-downs of a fiery love affair—a sometimes funny, sometimes devastating play that explores the deep trust and safety that can blossom between romantic partners…and how unexpectedly that trust can be shattered.
80 minutes, no intermission
Recommended for 16+. No children under the age of 4 will be admitted.

Because The Maid & The Mesmerizer includes important conversations about consent, trust, and safety between romantic partners, we are proud to host an Impact Night in support of the Schools Consent Project. Established by a criminal attorney from London, the Schools Consent Project (SCP) is a non-profit that sends lawyers into schools to teach young people the legal definition of consent.
