Synopsis: 

A stunt so dangerous Houdini refused to attempt it, the Bullet Catch has claimed the lives of at least 12 people since its conception in 1613.

Acclaimed performer, director, playwright (and magician) Rob Drummond plays modern-day marvel William Wonder in this theatrical magic show featuring mind reading, levitation and, if you're brave enough to stay, the most notorious finale in show business.

This gripping, edge-of-your-seat show was a sell-out smash at Edinburgh Festival Fringe 2012.

The running time of Bullet Catch is 75 minutes with no intermission.

    Here’s Hoping Understudies Aren’t Needed

    Charles Isherwood

    April 11, 2013: The slowly stoked atmosphere of tension is leavened by the less dangerous tricks Mr. Drummond performs. He engages in some head-scratching mind-reading on the same audience volunteer, asking him to think of various aspects of his life without verbalizing them. Before the volunteer tells us what they are, Mr. Drummond has written names, dates and details on pieces of paper. Gasp! Later they join together to perform a trick involving a levitating table. Unusually Mr. Drummond then draws back the veil to reveal the mechanics behind the trick, for those who are interested. (Preferring my illusions to remain illusions — in the theater, at least — I kept my eyes closed.)

    April 11, 2013: It’s both titillating and frightening, then, when Wonder, after performing several impressive tricks using a volunteer from the audience as his foil, instructs him to point a gun at his face and fire. In this charming “Brits Off Broadway” production, Drummond, co-directed by David Overend, uses magic to explore the ground between our fascination with death and our longing for love.
