Part theatre and part game, The Grift is an immersive, site-specific experience that will get its UK première staged in the historic Town Hall Hotel in London's Bethnal Green.
Dropping its audience of just 50 a show into the middle of an adventure in which they are trained in the art of the con, participants will meet 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.
They will have their intelligence tested and get trained in scams like The Pig In The Poke, The Round-The Corner, and The Money Swap … but in the end will they be sharp enough to take down an evil genius at his own game?
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.
And when the show ends?
They'll be released back into the world with a whole new skill set - one that can pay off for years to come.
