The BBC series of Peaky Blinders may have come to an end but London fans can look forward to seeing the Shelbys visit the capital with a special immersive theatre show.
The stage performance is called The Rise, and will be opening at the Camden Garrison in June, which shares the name with the gang’s pub in Birmingham.
It pledges to put the audience at the heart of one of the world’s most popular TV series and it’s presented in collaboration with creator Steven Knight.
So if you’ve been missing Thomas Shelby, played by Cillian Murphy, and the family, read on to find out everything about the new production.
What’s the show about?
You wouldn’t necessarily expect to see the hard men of Birmingham converted into theatre, but the gangsters’ story is now being brought to life on the stage.
Peaky Blinders: The Rise, is the first official fully immersive 360-degree theatre show set in the world of the Birmingham gangsters.
360 theatre is created with a camera system that simultaneously records all the scenes in 360 degree.
The show will follow the rise in fortune of Tommy Shelby and his family as the unfolding narrative and live actors place the audience right at the heart of the Shelby Company, featuring iconic locations, from the betting shop in Small Heath and The Garrison through to the bakery on the banks of Regent’s Canal.
Tommy personally invites you to a family meeting at the Shelby’s Camden warehouse, where he has a plan that could prove lucrative for everyone.
The show is a collaboration with Peaky Blinders creator Steven Knight and Caryn Mandabach Productions.
As the story unfolds you will experience live sets, unmissable character interactions, and even competitive game.
