Bullet CatchOne man attempts the most notorious of theatrical illusions; so notorious and dangerous that even Houdini refused to attempt it, and twelve other brave illusionists, assistants and audience members have died since its 17th century conception. Bullet Catch is a solo drama written and performed by Rob Drummond in the National Theatre's new temporary theatre space, The Shed, comes direct from a sell-out run at the Edinburgh Fringe where The Guardian reviewer Lyn Gardner described it as a "remarkable, multilayered and utterly gripping show".
