'I can make... impossible things happen.' Jude Beringer thinks she's going mad. Then she meets Leon, a young card magician who can make people disappear. What follows is a wildly entertaining journey through the minds of two young people surviving against the odds in the big bad city. A Sudden Burst of Blinding Light is at once a delirious game show, a witty and inventive exploration of mental illness and a powerfully compassionate play about family, friendship and illusion.
