To me, it seems the core theme of The Great Gatsby is complicity. It asks, relentlessly, how far you would go to get something you want or need, and what you would turn a blind eye to. It’s this subject that makes the story so potent for an immersive experience: Alexander Wright’s production invites theatregoers / Gatsby-party-attendees to become complicit in the events that unfold. From the moment we reach the stairs up to the venue, we are transported back to the twenties. Lucille (Lizzie … [Read more...]

When aiming to tap into the collective imagination of an audience, fairy tales are always a fantastic place to start. These stories are baked into our collective consciousness from childhood and the reimagining and reinterpretation of them often gives life to evocative work, as a result of this collective understanding.

Then, the day before we were due to … [Read more...]
