Do you believe in Magic?
This amazingly poignant and unique show, which has been to the Edinburgh Fringe, was created by Beverley about her journey with grief following the death of her son, Jess Fairweather, who took his own life in October 2018, aged 20.
In October 2020 Beverley said, “Finding Magic is about my ups and downs and the grief process so far, but it’s also broader than that it’s about finding life force, finding magic and looking at what it is that makes us feel alive. ''
