    "F Scott Fitzgerald’s novel comes to life in the Guild of Misrule’s fancy-dress interpretation, though you may be too busy playing spin the bottle to hear the whole story"

    Very talented actors. Sadly the venue was very hot and stuffy with no aircon and minimal ventilation so had to leave halfway during the show as I started feeling too sick, which was a shame. The staff were kind to offer help. There aren’t enough seats so you may end up standing for most, if not the whole time (some older audience sat on the floor towards the end) - something to bear in mind for elderly and ladies wearing heels. Some of the soundtracks were not true to the 1920s theme but the actors were convincing. Overall experience was unique, lots of people dressed up in theme which added to the experience.

    Very good performances and interaction with the audience. The sets could be a bit more carefully designed.
