Through a darker lens, we catch a candid glimpse of the Bogofs’ private backstage life, their secret fantasies, dark neuroses and dysfunctional relationship; Is the giant rabbit merely a figment of Mr Bogof’s imagination? Where exactly does Mrs Bogof go when she vanishes from the magic box?
Is this the real thing or is this just fantasy?
It’s a Kinda Magic! pulls you through the cracks of their glittering showbiz facade, into a parallel universe, where illusion and reality collide and become unsettlingly entangled.
