In the 1980s, the Great Baldini (the legendary magician) lectured at Fort Monckton (MI6's school for spies) on 'The Use of Magic and Misdirection in Spycraft'. This lecture is now declassified under the Thirty Year Rule.
Audience Interaction, Dirty Tricks explores darker aspects of Spycraft - some elements (Russian roulette and assassination) may disturb sensitive audiences.
In the lecture, Baldini taught Dirty Tricks to MI6 recruits - how to rig an election, cross the Berlin Wall, win at Russian roulette, launder money and trigger a sleeper assassin. Now you can learn too!
A masterclass in applying magical thinking to the treacherous world of Cold War spymasters, think Paul Daniels meets John Le Carre!
