The Great GatsbyThe UK's longest running immersive theatre show, The Great Gatsby, adapted and directed by Alexander Wright, has been staged in empty shopping centres, stately homes, warehouses and empty pubs. It first came to London's Vault Festival, at the Waterloo Vaults in March 2017, and continues at Gatsby's Drugstore. F Scott Fitzgerald's Jazz Age novel, which brilliantly depicts a decadent society obsessed with wealth and status, revives a world of jazz, bootleg liquor and more than a little scandal. Expect music, cocktails, debauchery with dressing up encouraged and dancing shoes mandatory. The show draws together creatives from Secret Cinema, Les Enfant Terribles, The Flanagan Collective and Belt Up Theatre.
