In 1902 a mysterious and anonymous man by the same of S. W. Erdnase published a book called The Expert at the Card Table. In the following years this book has gained cult-like status in the magic and gambling world — required reading by any magician and gambler. This show is the physical interpretation and logical conclusion of that book.

Fascinating Lies is a magic production and consulting firm founded in 2015 by jden redden and Andrew Lymn-Penning for their debut show, Reading Minds and Other Fascinating Lies at the 2016 Adelaide Fringe Festival; with iconic staging in Gluttony, the show sold-out three consecutive weekends in a row. Fascinating Lies brings a fresh, young and unique take on stagemagic—blending technology and established methods in magic to create dynamic and engaging performances for the modern audience.
In 2017, Fascinating Lies returned with two new productions; The Expert at the Card Table — How to Cheat at Cards and SUPERHUMAN. This year The Expert at the Card Table — How to Cheat at Cards returns for another season and debuts a new production SUBCONSCIOUS.
