See the popular novel come to life.
The new immersive production of The Great Gatsby by The Guild Of Misrule and The Immersive Ensemble has extended its booking at a Top Secret Zone 1 location to 10 September 2017.
The production, which originally opened at The Vaults in Waterloo, transferred to its new central London location where it was originally running to 2 July 2017.
Drawing together creatives from Secret Cinema, Les Enfant Terribles, The Flanagan Collective and Belt Up Theatre the immersive experience is written and directed by Alexander Wright and based on the Novel by F. Scott Fitzgerald. Dressing up is actively encouraged, and guests can expect to feel completely immersed in the hedonistic world of Jay Gatsby and his set.
"The honour would be entirely mine if you would attend my little party." It’s the roaring twenties – an era of bootleg liquor, red hot jazz and hedonistic pleasures. Jay Gatsby has invited you to one of his infamous parties and that's not an invite you want to turn down. Step into a heart-racing immersive adaptation of F Scott Fitzgerald’s seminal jazz-age novel which puts you in the heart of the action. Slip on your dancing shoes and watch the story unfold around you in this unique theatrical performance. The cocktails are flowing, the music is playing, the party is in full swing and there's the chance of more than a little scandal."
The cast features Ollie Tilney (Jay Gatsby), Louise Williams (Daisy Buchanan), Thomas Maller (Tom Buchanan), Dan Dingsdale (Nick Carraway), Holly Beasley-Garrigan (Jordan Baker), Veronica Hare (Myrtle Wilson), Phil Grainger (George Wilson), Imogen Little (Kitty), alongside an ensemble including Jessica Guise, Toby Gordon and Ollo Clark.
Brian Hook for The Guild of Misrule said of the news: “There has been an overwhelming response to the show, and rather fittingly the public now has to ‘know a guy who knows a guy’ to get a ticket in June. We’re thrilled to be opening the doors at our new secret location until September, and also adding Gatsby Lates performances”.
Gatsby Lates will extend the fun to 2am, fortnightly on Fridays and Saturdays from Friday 23 June and will feature live music, DJs and unexpected performers.
The production features choreography by Holly Beasley-Garrigan, and design by Casey Andrews. The age limit for the production is 18 plus. Audiences will be told the central London location of the event after booking.
The Great Gatsby tickets are now on sale to 10 September 2017.
