Magic is not what you see, but what you think you see. Barry Henson (Pat Scott) had this lesson to learn when he applied for the role of magician's assistant. A simple enough job - all he had to do was sit in the audience. When the magician, a world-weary trouper named Splendido (Whit Haydn), called for a volunteer to come up on stage to help with the next illusion - he would be the one. He would be the stooge. But is that all? What is Angela (Carisa Hendrix) doing, and what is she trying to tell him? She is the beautiful young woman who seems to manage everything behind the scenes. Is she just a touch of scantily clad glamour to distract the men in the audience, or is she the power behind Splendido's throne? Is she in fact the real magician in the act? Barry was soon to find out, in a way that was to change his life. Magic is not what you see, nor is it what you want to see. Written by Christopher Priest
