THE ARCHES AND ROB DRUMMOND | UK
“Remarkable, multilayered and utterly gripping” The Guardian
A stunt so dangerous even Houdini refused to attempt it, the bullet catch has claimed the lives of many since its conception in 1613.
In this acclaimed piece of theatre, writer, co-director and performer Rob Drummond plays William Wonder who, with the help of his audience, explores the life and death of a famed magician who died 100 years ago undertaking the trick onstage.
Using spectacular illusion and psychological magic – along with a whole box of clever theatrical tricks that include storytelling and audience interaction, Drummond presents a unique theatrical magic show. Bullet Catch features storytelling, mind reading, levitation, games of chance and, if you’re brave enough to stay for it, the most notorious finale in show business.
