Finding Magic is a unique, insightful, and emotive one woman show. Equal parts moving and magical, Finding Magic is a captivating story of a mother’s loss, longing, love, laughter, and solace.

Beverley uses storytelling, film, and clowning to share how she found her magic again following the loss of her son Jess to suicide. 

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 makes us feel alive.” 

The OLLIE Foundation is a suicide prevention charity based in Hertfordshire, set up in 2016 by three parents who had tragically each lost a son to suicide.
