London presents to you, Night at the Bombay Roxy. An immersive Indian noir set in the late 1940’s.
The venue is stunning and you are immediately transformed back in time. With the jazz band playing, the show goes on around you while you dine.
Upon arrival, you are greeted and given a drinking permit. Do not lose this! The police come around to see whose is valid and whose is a forgery. You will be taken away and grilled about the forgery if this is yours…
During this time it is revealed that the police are after a convicted criminal Cyrus Irani, who is now free after years in prison. Cyrus intends to put Bombay underworld behind him. His new venture, The Bombay Roxy, he is hoping, will be his redemption. Bombay Roxy is a café by day and club by night. This is where everyone goes who wants to see and be seen.
The performance runs for 3 hours which has intervals throughout. You will definitely lose track of time as you are completely caught up in the show, possibly becoming a part of the event. With food and drinks flowing, action scenes happening, delightful music playing, this night is one to be remembered.
This event is created by Swamp Studios, an innovative theatre company led by talented young artists Ollie Jones and Clem Garrity from the award-winning theatre collective Kill the Beast, and director Eduard Lewis, Assistant Director of Dr. Seuss’s The Lorax. It is inspired by Naresh Fernandes’ critically acclaimed book Taj Mahal Foxtrot, Dishoom and Swamp Studios collaborate on bringing to life Bombay’s jazz age in a site-specific immersive theatre production.
Never breaking character throughout the entire event, the cast really help to bring this show to life. With the many years of acting experience between them, you can understand why you are easily caught up by their performance. Don’t just take my word for it, go and see for yourself. Running until Thursday December 14. The performance includes a welcome drink and a table full of the finest Bombay dishes and the live jazz music.
Dressing up (or smart) is encouraged.
