The Great Gatsby
Written by F. Scott Fitzgerald, Adapted by Simon Levy
Money, class, romance, and corruption collide as F. Scott Fitzgerald’s quintessential take on the American dream comes to life on stage.
Opulent parties, passionate affairs, jealousy, and murder are tangled together in this powerful and vivid tale of American bravado, lost love, and post-war recovery in the Roaring Twenties. The Great Gatsby is an eloquent evocation of a bygone era that deeply resonates with our world today.
Just as a reminder, this show is based on a classic novel for adults, so contains some adult language and content (namely most characters are having affairs).
