Accompanied by a riotous live jazz band, this new, subversive adaptation of The Great Gatsby retells the Jazz-Age classic from a feminist perspective. Nick, a young and ambitious stockbroker, is befriended by the illusive millionaire, Jay Gatsby. At first enamoured with the lavish lifestyle of the nouveau-riche, Nick soon begins to see through the cracks in Gatsby's façade, where deception and tragedy lie in wait.

Set against the glamorous backdrop of New York in the roaring twenties, F. Scott Fitzgerald’s The Great Gatsby tells a heart-breaking tale of social stratification, excess and unfulfilled love that treads the line of dark obsession.

'I hope she’ll be a fool – that's the best thing a girl can be in this world, a beautiful little fool.'
