See dates and times 11 May 2023
Theatr Clwyd announce the cast for their interactive performance of The Great Gatsby (15 June – 27 Aug) a co-production with The Guild of Misrule. Following its sell out performance in 2018, the hit immersive show returns once again to The Dolphin Pub, Mold for a huge summer season. In this immersive adaptation of F Scott Fitzgerald’s jazz-age novel the audience are at the heart of the action.
It’s the roaring twenties – an era of bootleg liquor and red-hot jazz. Jay Gatsby has invited you to one of his infamous parties and that’s not an invite you’ll want to turn down. Cocktails are flowing, music is playing, and the party is in full swing.
Swinging into The Dolphin Pub for this production, Siobhan Bevan (she/her) (The F*ck it Bucket, Netflix) as Myrtle, Huw Blainey (he/him) (War Horse, UK & International Tour National Theatre) as George, Jack Hammett (he/him) (As Long as the Heart Beats, National Theatre Wales) as Nick, Richard McIver (he/him) (LIFE COACH, National Theatre Wales) as Gatsby, Troy Marcus Richards (he/him) (Richard II, Quandary Collective) as Tom, Seren Vickers (she/her) (Truth or Dare, Theatr Clwyd) as Jordan and Bethan Rose Young (she/her) (The Soldier’s Tale, Church Hill Theatre).
0 StarsI’m thrilled we’re able to bring our immersive production of The Great Gatsby back to north Wales, since it’s hugely successful run in 2018. Since then, the show has gone from strength to strength opening productions across the globe, so it’s particularly exciting to be welcoming so many of the original and West End Creative Team back to create this even more decadent production for 2023. Immersive theatre goes beyond the traditional boundaries of the stage and plunges the audience into a fully realised world, so put on your dancing shoes and join us at the Dolphin this summer to experience the magic of The Great Gatsby like never before.Theatr Clwyd’s Director of Producing, Wes Bennett-Pearce.
