NEWS: Casting Announced for UK Premiere of The Grift

Full casting has been announced for the new immersive experience from the creator of Accomplice at the Menier Chocolate Factory and Goosebumps Alive in The Vaults at Waterloo. 


Casting has been confirmed for the UK premiere of The Grift, a brand new site-specific experience that will be staged in the historic Town Hall Hotel in London’s Bethnal Green from the 23rd January.

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 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.

The cast for the production is set to include: Dylan Allcock, Ged Forrest, Rachel Harper, Laura Kirman, Alastair Kirton, Daniel Millar, Kevin Moore and  Mark Oosterveen.

The Grift was conceived, written and directed by Tom Salamon  who makes his return to the UK after immersive successes Accomplice at the Menier Chocolate Factory and Goosebumps Alive in The Vaults at Waterloo. It is produced by award-winning Danielle Tarento (Titanic, Ragtime, Le Grand Mort, Dogfight).

The Grift will play at the Town Hall Hotel in Bethnal Green from the 23rd January until the 25th March. To book tickets visit:
