‘...remarkable, multilayered and utterly gripping’ The Guardian
The Bullet Catch is the greatest challenge for any illusionist. A stunt so dangerous that even the great Houdini refused to attempt it, it has claimed the lives of numerous illusionists, assistants and spectators since its conception in 1613.
Now, with a little help from his audience, modern-day marvel William Wonder presents a theatrical magic show featuring storytelling, mind-reading, levitation, games of chance and – if you’re brave enough to stay for it – the most notorious finale in showbusiness. Tense and thought-provoking, it balances suspense and humour with a perceptive exploration of despair and of the nature of choice.
Bullet Catch was a huge success at last year’s Edinburgh Festival Fringe. A unique fusion of magic and theatre, it plays with our perceptions of truth and illusion to create an intense dramatic experience.
