The Grift

Love immersive theatre?
Love the art of con?

Danielle Tarento presents the UK première of The Grift
Written and directed by Tom Salamon 

Within the Town Hall in London’s Bethnal Green deception is taking place.

This immersive experience is part theatre and part game.

Audience’s of 50 will be taken on an adventure in which all will be trained in the art of con. Participants will meet various characters, solve clues and get a masterclass in the ways of the grifter, all in the interest of pulling off one final swindle to take down a seamy
criminal mastermind.

Intelligence will be tested, training of being a scammer will commence but will you end up being sharp enough to take down an evil genius at his own game?

This is an experience unlike anything ever performed on a stage.

The Grift will sweep its audience into a thrilling adventure, turning everyday theatergoers into master con men.

This event is advertised as an immersive, site-specific experience that’s part theatre and part game, a very apt description of what we were treated to during our visit…
