 “An innovative combination of forensic science and magic”

(Voice Magazine) 

 “Crime Scene Illusion is a clever genre mash-up, which combines well-executed magic tricks with a satisfying detective back-story, in an impressive hour of crime-themed chicanery.” (Fringe Guru) 


“Wise utilises her enigmatic skill set of magic tricks to elevate group participation to a degree I have yet to observe in any fringe event.” (Voice Magazine) 


“Wise is a winning entertainer. It’s rare to see a magic show with such a clear sense of purpose, or a magician who’s so comfortable with a high-concept theme. I enjoyed it immensely… and if you’ve ever lapped up a police drama, I’m sure that you will too.” (Fringe Guru)
