Overview & description
Originally created in York by writer and director Alexander Wright, this unique production has now performed to over 50,000 people in 8 locations across the UK and Ireland. As London's longest running immersive theatre show, this is a rare opportunity to experience this cult piece of theatre as it visits Castle Howard for one week only.
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 adaption 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 night is in full swing and there's the chance of more than a little scandal.
Join the celebration of a lifetime with Jay Gatsby and immerse yourself in one of the greatest stories of the 20th Century.
