The original production was created by Holly Beasley-Garrigan, Amie Burns Walker, Hannah Davies, Phil Grainger, Michael Lambourne, Thomas Maller and Oliver Tilney.
The show was first conceived in 2015 and then ran in York in 2016 with a parallel production in Sheffield. Produced by the Guild of Misrule, first came to London as part of VAULT Festival back in 2017. An immediate success that allowed the show to have run in Wales in co-production with Theatr Clwyd, at Halifax’s Square Chapel, and at Castle Howard in North Yorkshire. All the while the show has played night after night at Gatsby’s Drugstore in London SE1, inviting audiences into the hedonistic world of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s extraordinary tale, and in 2018 it became the UK’s longest running immersive production.
The Great Gatsby previously was one of the first show to re-open in 2021 but was once again forced to close in November due to a new lockdown. It then re-opened in September 2021 with its pre-pandemic format and with the venue at full capacity.
