Quiz Show: Welcome to False!, the quiz show where there are no questions, only statements, where every statement is a lie, and where the prize is nothing less than the truth. Everyone's favourite quizmaster, Daniel Caplin, gives tonight's gifted contestants the chance to play for the ultimate prize - to discover what lies behind the Door of Truth. Newcomer Sandra has always been desperate to find out and she's more than a threat to our reigning champion. Tonight, there is even more to play for. Can the show survive what she discovers? Bullet Catch: The high-risk Bullet Catch has claimed many lives since its conception in 1613. Modern-day marvel William Wonder presents a theatre show with magic, mindreading, levitation and, if you dare stay, the most notorious stunt of them all. A unique theatrical experience exploring the world of magic, featuring mind-reading, levitation, and the most notorious finale in show business. One of Scotland's most exciting theatre-makers, Rob Drummond pushes the boundaries of popular culture in these two unique pieces of theatre.

MEDIA REVIEWS
A startlingly deep reflection on the mysterious relationship between performance and despair, the intense life of the stage and the sudden blackness of death. * Scotsman on Bullet Catch *
Wonderfully entertaining but emotionally devastating . . . Remarkable, multi-layered and utterly gripping. * Guardian on Bullet Catch *
It delicately sits between truth and fiction, playing with the intangibility of magic and human connection. * Stage on Bullet Catch *
Gripping psychothriller about truth and perspective from rising star Rob Drummond ... [a] breakneck, ambitious story ... a hugely poignant statement about the very nature of secular truth and how we essentially are no more than what we tell ourselves to believe. -- David Pollock * Independent on Quiz Show *
[A] strange and stirring piece of 21st-century theatre ... it is thrilling? to see a first full-length play which works so relentlessly ?and brilliantly on the consciousness of the audience, taking us on a journey - into the immediate past of our society and its possible futures - from which we cannot return unchanged. -- Joyce McMillan * Scotsman on Quiz Show *
Very funny ... what Quiz Show does brilliantly ... is give theatrical form to the nightmare of a disturbed mind, one riven by false and repressed memories ... It leaves us uneasy and haunted. -- Mark Fisher * Guardian on Quiz Show *
Powerful and spellbinding ... Fun as the veneer is, behind the False's quiz show format is a timely, brave and important play that delves right to the heart of a contemporary tale of celebrity culture and mass denial. -- Thom Dibdin * Stage on Quiz Show *
Drummond's dangerously incisive piece plays with pop culture in a way that ultimately damns it. . . When the applause comes at the end of Walsh's final, pulverising soliloquy, it damns us all. -- Neil Cooper * Herald *
