The Gangs of New York

Event details

This summer: an epic journey to 19th century New York City!

Step into the vibrant and tumultuous world of 19th century New York at the Grosvenor Park Open Air Theatre. Experience a gripping tale of love, betrayal, and the relentless pursuit of power with the riveting story of John Morrissey, an ambitious Irish immigrant who navigates the perilous climb of the American dream.

Witness his rise as both a feared gang leader and a respected politician. Amidst the chaos, two star-crossed lovers find solace in each other’s arms, bravely defying the boundaries set by their feuding families. Join us for a unforgettable theatre experience under the stars.
