From The Arthur Conan Doyle Encyclopedia
Nothing on Earth (Can Hold Houdini) (2014)

Nothing on Earth (Can Hold Houdini) is an American play written and directed by Randall Sharp, performed by Axis Theatre Company from 27 february to 5 april 2014, at the Axis Theatre (New York, USA), starring Spencer Aste as Sir Arthur Conan Doyle and George Demas as Harry Houdini.

The play examines Houdini's driven crusade to expose fraudulent mediums and his crossing paths with the avid spiritualist Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. Both men are catapulted to the center of The Scientific American Magazine contest to find the first-ever provable clairvoyant, a battle that destroyed their friendship and left Houdini to continue his search for a true psychic to contact his mother.
