WELCOME

The COLAB Factory is the accumulation of the UK's most forward thinking immersive theatre makers.

Together we will strive to create the first ever home for Immersive Theatre. Using the ethos of COLAB, we will endeavour to make the best immersive theatre possible. We want to transport audiences into completely different worlds. We want the COLAB Factory to be a wondrous place that's full of many different experiences. 

We already create new and exciting theatre but with this venue we can continue to create innovative work and be able to call the premises the first home of Immersive Theatre.

Together we will create the first theatre devoted to the immersive experience. A venue that has a place on the map.

THE DROVES

17/02/2018 - 25/02/2018

The Droves is an immersive theatre show, designed by kids, for adults.

You’re invited into a secret community of children living deep beneath a derelict carpet factory. For decades they’ve hidden from adults, growing strange in the darkness – but now they’re asking you in… Unsettling dilemmas, mushroom forests and at least one gorilla await you at the door.

Part immersive experience, part escape game, BAFTA award winning company Coney present the imaginations of 6-11 year olds as they take over their own site in London Bridge for this unique theatrical event.

“If you want to see the future of British theatre now, Coney is one of the companies to watch”

Lyn Gardner, The Guardian

"The honour would be entirely mine if you would attend my little party."
 
It’s the roaring twenties – an era of bootleg liquor, red hot jazz and hedonistic pleasures. Jay Gatsby has invited you to one of his infamous parties and that's not an invite you want to turn down.
 

Step into a heart-racing immersive adaptation of F Scott Fitzgerald’s seminal jazz-age novel which puts you in the heart of the action. Slip on your dancing shoes and watch the story unfold around you in this unique theatrical performance. The cocktails are flowing, the music is playing, the party is in full swing and there's the chance of more than a little scandal.
 
Immerse yourself in one of the greatest stories of the 20th Century.
