In 1913, literary genius G.K. Chesterton made his playwriting debut with Magic, a beautifully mastered “Fantastic Comedy.” This piece depicts an aristocratic ensemble whose doubt, skepticism of faith, and opposing ideologies arise out of the appearance of a curious evening guest.

Come and enjoy how the playwright cleverly balances humor with solemnity, romance with despair, and inquiries with solutions. Watch this enthralling mystery unfold before your very eyes.

Parking is FREE at the City’s Market Square (406 Walnut St.), State Street Garage (520 State St.) and Locust Street Garage (540 Locust St.) after 6 p.m.
