After winning the ThreeWeeks Editors’ Award at Edinburgh Fringe Festival in 2018, their latest rollicking production is now coming to London. The Swell Mob, an ‘explosive immersive theatrical experience’, invites audience members to dress up and enter the hedonistic world of a 19th century taproom for an evening of debauched fun. Guests are invited to dance, drink, sing and gamble with a motley crew of characters straight out of the Victorian underworld.
Flabbergast have called it their ‘boldest creation to date’, which combines puppetry and cabaret in a multi-sensory experience. The performance will have a three month run at COLAB Factory, the world’s first venue exclusively dedicated to immersive and interactive theatre, from 4 May until 25 August at 7:00pm (Thursday to Sunday) and 8:45pm (Thursday to Saturday).
London's theatre scene certainly isn't lacking in awe-inspiring immersive events with Bompas and Parr's Lost Lagoon, a swashbuckling Caribbean escape and Variant 31, an upcoming zombie apocalyptic 'survival experience' on the agenda this spring. The Swell Mob is another welcome addition which is sure to entice audience members out of their seats.
