By F. Scott Fitzgerald

Adapted by Stephen Sharkey

Directed by Eliot Giuralarocca

Musical Director Ellie Verkerk

Immersing you in the decadence of America's 'Jazz Age', The Great Gatsby is brought to life in this sizzling new stage adaptation from nationally acclaimed Blackeyed Theatre. Recreating the sights, sounds and feel of America's 'Roaring Twenties' as seen through the eyes of Nick Carraway, F. Scott Fitzgerald's masterpiece is a brilliant evocation of a society obsessed with wealth and status.

Adapted by Stephen Sharkey, whose work includes The May Queen (Liverpool Everyman) and The Resistible Rise Of Arturo Ui (Liverpool Playhouse/Nottingham Playhouse), this exciting new production features fabulous live music alongside the timeless language of Fitzgerald's Great American Novel to create a truly fresh and inspiring theatrical experience.
