“Ladies and gentlemen, I require a volunteer…”

Do you believe that free will is just an illusion? Do you wonder what you’re truly capable of? Do you think a man can catch a bullet between his teeth?

In this heart-stopping piece, Rob Drummond appears before us in the role of William Wonder, magician, to tell an incredible tale.

William Henderson tried to perform the bullet catch trick over a century ago; unsurprisingly, he died on stage.

Wonder takes us through this story and beyond, treating the audience to mind reading, levitation and more on the way to a finale that will make your heart pound.

This is a performance about truth, illusion and danger. As a magic show, it’s dazzling; as drama, it’s moving and profound. But it’s as a challenge to the audience that it goes over the top. Daring, shocking and suspenseful, this is theatre so good it’s almost against the law.

“Thrill seekers should go for the danger, thinkers for the philosophy, theatrical types for the drama, those of a curious disposition can go for the magic. And for all you cynics, just go for the Bullet Catch.” – Londonist
