By F. Scott Fitzgerald, adapted for the stage by Simon Levy
It is the height of prohibition and young Nick Carraway has taken up residence in Long Island’s “West Egg”, home to the nouveau riche. He is soon befriended by his neighbor, the mysterious Jay Gatsby, and drawn into his glitzy, if garish, world of lavish parties and secret speakeasies. But as Gatsby’s secretive past is uncovered and his intentions revealed, Nick finds himself a pawn in a love triangle so scandalous, it threatens to destroy all those around him. This American classic is a poignant examination of America in the early twentieth century, exploring the notions of love, morality, identity and the corruption of the American Dream. F. Scott Fitzgerald’s best known and most beloved work, The Great Gatsby finally comes to the stage in this exclusive new adaption by Simon Levy.
