History of The Great Gatsby immersive London experience
First created in 2015 by producer Brian Hook and director Alexander Wright, The Great Gatsby first ran in 2016 in York whilst a co-production with Theatre Deli was staged in Sheffield in parallel. It later made its London debut at the 2017 VAULT Festival and completely sold out before the show even opened. The Great Gatsby immersive show has since been staged in Wales in co-production with Theatr Clwyd, at the Castle Howard in North Yorkshire, and at Halifax's Square Chapel.
As of 2018, The Great Gatsby has held the theatre record for the longest-running immersive production in the UK.
