This summer, The Great Gatsby has become the longest running immersive production in the UK. The Guild of Misrule’s extraordinary retelling of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s iconic novel continues to invite audiences into the decadent world of 1920s jazz and excess. It has now extended to run until the end of the year.
This unique immersive theatrical experience has proved immensely popular and, by public demand, has continually extended since it first opened Gatsby’s Drugstore on 1st June 2017. This longevity has seen the show encounter new challenges,maintaining a strongpresence at the forefront of the development of immersive theatre,and becomingone of the industry leaders in finding ways to allow this ever-changing genre to continue to grow.
The Great Gatsby first came to London as part of VAULT Festival in 2017 and sold out before the show opened. The show has played night after night in London, inviting audiences in to the hedonistic world of F Scott Fitzgerald’s extraordinary tale.
The Great Gatsby allows audiences to fully immerse themselves into the world of Jay Gatsby and the glamour of the Roaring 20s. With cocktails, dancing and scandal, this heart-racing adaptation of this seminal jazz-age story puts the audience at the heart of the action.
Since opening its secret door in December 2015, across the roof of an empty pub in York, the Gatsby phenomenon has kept growing and growing, and shows no sign of slowing down.
