What to expect from someone who claims to read minds? Well let’s face it; a lot of scepticism. But Tomas McCabe, the 23-year-old mind reader, is about to rock the world of sceptics.

The show begins with a voice-over and a short film about the Creery sisters, five young girls in Derbyshire who were believed to have mind-reading abilities in the 1880s. From this example of mindreading studies, Tomas takes us back to the here and now with a lovely introduction to his one man show and his interest in mind-reading. Through the show, he shares some of his secrets as to how he can guess what his audience members are thinking. He starts out by guessing if a person is lying, and by this determine what they are thinking. With a background in psychology, he explains the simpler workings of body language and other ways that people unconsciously determine if another person is lying.
