Introducing…Bullet Catch

So dangerous that even Houdini didn’t dare it, the bullet catch has claimed many lives since its inception in 1613. In this nail-biter, the acclaimed writer and performer Rob Drummond attempts the death-defying stunt before your very eyes. A theatrical experience unlike any other, Bullet Catch features wondrous acts of mind reading, levitation, and the most notorious finale in show business.

Bullet Catch has been performed across 5 continents to a global audience of over 17,000 and has enjoyed sell out runs in London, New York, Sydney, Brazil, and Hong Kong.

Rob Drummond is an award-winning playwright, performer, and director based in Glasgow, Scotland. His wide ranging work includes the critically acclaimed Rob Drummond: Wrestling, which took place in a ring at the Arches (Glasgow, 2011) and involved five months of professional wrestling training, and a modern retelling of The Passion, which premiered in George Square (Glasgow, 2011). In September 2014, he was co-commissioned by the Arches and National Theatre of Great Britain to present a three-act performance, centring on the recent Scottish Independence Referendum; Wallace was first shown at the Arches during the week of the referendum and will go on to be developed further in London next year. Drummond is currently working on a screenplay with Little Kong and Penny Dreadful Films.

“Combines the thrills of a high-grade magic show with a profound theatrical meditation on free will”
—Daily Telegraph

Bullet Catch is presented with the PuSh International Performing Arts Festival. Starting January 15 at the Revue Stage, tickets to this death-defying performance start at just $25. Book online or call our box office at 604.687.1644.
