Posted on January 19, 2018 by James
Part theatre and part game – a night to remember at London’s iconic Town Hall Hotel
The Grift, an immersive part game, part theatre experience – is coming to the UK in 2018. The site-specific experience will première on Tuesday 23rd January, in the historic Town Hall Hotel in London’s Bethnal Green.
The intimate evening will host 50 people per show and participants will be dropped right in the middle of an adventure where they will be trained in the art of the con. Guests will meet characters, solve clues, have a masterclass from the ultimate grifter and be trained to pull off one final swindle – to take down a renowned criminal mastermind.
This fun immersive evening tests your intelligence with scams such as: The Pig In The Poke, The Round-The Corner and The Money Swap, There’s a delicious free cocktail to go alongside the con that takes place in the bar. And the evening culminates with the ultimate challenge – to take down an evil genius at his own game. All will be revealed on the night!
To go alongside the live experience The Grift-goers are invited to dine at The Corner Room where they will feast on dishes including Vacherin fondue, grilled cabbages & trompettes, slow cooked venison shoulder, Delica pumpkin & nuts and for a sweet treat warm chocolate mousse with hazelnut ice cream. The perfect evening to be enjoyed with a group of friends and also with that special someone.
Writer-director Tom Salamon said: “I’m thrilled to be returning to the ‘seen-it- all’ sophisticated audiences of London, they’re up for anything and love to get involved and play along and I think we’re giving them something entirely unique that they haven’t experienced before.”
