Written, Directed and Performed by: Rob Drummond

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.

The Arches, one of Europe's leading cultural venues, is both an arts receiving and production house with an international reputation as an exciting hub of ground-breaking creativity. Housed within seven Grade A listed Victorian railway arches in Glasgow city centre, the venue presents a year-round programme of theatre, performance, dance, visual art, live music, corporate events and club nights. The programming team employs calculated risk-taking in all of its creative decisions, nurturing emergent talent and rewarding bold approaches with a supportive environment for further innovation. Alongside performance by emergent Scottish artists, the last few years have seen ground-breaking international artists and companies such as The TEAM, Derevo, Ann Liv Young, Mammalian Diving Reflex, Ontroerend Goed, Akhe, Taylor Mac and Tim Crouch perform in the venue. The Arches regularly takes work to the Edinburgh Fringe and has won numerous awards there, including several Fringe Firsts, Herald Angels and Total Theatre Awards.
