Bombay, 1949

It is a close and heavy monsoon night on Marine Lines.  Despite the weather, there is a jostling of people outside the Bombay Roxy. The club didn’t always have this pull or indeed its current reputation. The man behind the reinvention is the charismatic Cyrus Irani, whose name was once synonymous with Bombay’s racketeers, with murky allegiances, and with police escorts to Arthur Road Jail. But now Cyrus fully intends to put the Bombay underworld behind him. And his new venture, the Bombay Roxy, might just be his redemption.

All of the performances will feature a dining experience, during which audience members can feast on a menu of classic Bombay dishes as the performance unfolds, while sipping on cocktails.

The production has been created by Swamp Studios, a theatre company led by Ollie Jones and Clem Garritty (from the award-winning theatre collective Kill the Beast). Night at the Bombay Roxy has been directed by Eduard Lewis, with the rest of the creative team including: composer Dom James, movement director Sara Green, lighting designer Christopher Nairne and sound designer, David Gregory.

Night at the Bombay Roxy will be performed at the Dishoom Kensington from the 27th November until the 14th December. For more information and to book tickets visit: http://nightatthebombayroxy.com/
