The Extraordinaires is a series which begins in 1908 and follows the adventures of  seventeen year old Kingsley Ward as he tries to fulfil his longtime ambition to become a stage magician. His introduction to the world of the Edwardian theatre is made all the more difficult by his mysterious background, found orphaned in India, rescued by a British academic and brought to London.

The Extraordinaires is full of dash, adventure and more than a little exploration of what makes us who we are, as well as the serious considerations of the benefits and problems of civilisation. In a world of manners, morals and changing times, such considerations are more than timely.

Hey presto!
