The Great Gatsby by F Scott Fitzgerald Open air theatre production
Get some of the glitz and glamour of the Roaring 1920s wealthy America with sparkling costumes, jazz, prohibition partying and a web of romantic intrigue. Join Heartbreak Productions and meet the Nick Carraway jazz quartet. Nick is not only the band leader but a top-notch storyteller. When he’s in the mood, he can take you back to the summer of 1922 when he lived next door to none other than the infamous Jay Gatsby.
Nick was working as a bond salesman in New York the summer he met the mysterious party-throwing millionaire. Before long, Nick found out that Gatsby and his cousin Daisy (who conveniently lives nearby) used to be an item. Gatsby is still in love with (read obsessed with) Daisy, but Daisy is now married to the pretentious and unfaithful Tom.
So get the glad rags out, check out the Charleston and be transported to the Jazz Age.
Served up with a twist of iconic Heartbreak style, this outdoor adaptation of F Scott Fitzgerald’s The Great Gatsby is the perfect way to mark 100 years since prohibition. Dress for the weather bring a chair or blanket to sit on, and don’t forget the picnic and prosecco (now that prohibition has been lifted!).
