Now Londoners can experience real-life Monopoly in a live-action immersive production based on the beloved board game. Game-makers Hasbro and Selladoor theatre company have joined forces to create a 75-minute adventure where teams will face a series of challenges as they navigate the opportunities and pitfalls of the Monopoly 'board'.
Will you buy up the board or save your cash? Can you collect a set and start stockpiling houses? Or will you get sent to jail? While wily landlords and unexpected taxes may sound a bit close to home for many millennials, the immersive theatre format taps into the growing appetite for interactive experiences.
David Hutchinson, CEO of Salladoor Worldwide production, describes how trends in the entertainment sector 'are moving in a very exciting direction with demand from a new generation of theatre-goers looking to experience live theatre differently, and to be immersed in the narrative in a different way.'
Details of the production are still sparse, but there's a sizeable budget and plans to expand beyond London to create immersive Monopoly experiences all around the word.
The Monopoly London immersive experience is due to launch in 2020. Watch this space for updates.
