What a riot! Secret Theatre: The Great Gatsby In Hong Kong


We experienced our first Secret Theatre at Tai Kwun when the heritage arts centre first reopened. It was a murder mystery to be solved and we sat in the jury deciding if the defendant was guilty or not. We also got to sit in a jail cell to talk to the Hannibal Lector character and investigate the crime scenes set in the different rooms of the former court house.


Tickets included dinner at One Michelin starred Thai restaurant Aarhn by David Thompson before we adjourned for the show. I absolutely love immersive theatre over a good meal and we didn’t miss a beat when Secret Theatre returned to the Peninsula with The Great Gatsby.

We had a three course meal from Felix and got to hang out with Gatbsy himself and create a boomerang NFT while swing dancing with the crew on stage.

Immersive dining by Secret Theatre is a great form of entertainment – and combines my two favourite things – eating and performance arts. It seamlessly combines the thrill of live theatre with the delight of a delicious meal. Whether you’re a theatre enthusiast or simply looking for a unique and memorable experience, I think you’d have fun at Secret Theatre’s shows.

We’re looking forward to more shows and great nights out, and for me escaping the 24/7 role of motherhood for a couple of hours with the world of mystery, suspense over delectable cuisine, with actors impromptu interacting with you in character.

On a different note, if you’re looking for a family-friendly staycation, the Peninsula Hotel offers stunning views, great amenities and of course the classic High Tea that everyone talks about.
