Published in 1925, a year before the collapse of the stock markets, Fitzgerald's novel depicts a society being destroyed by money and dishonesty, the American Dream of happiness and individualism degenerating into the mere pursuit of wealth. This new version adapts Fitzgerald's classic novel into a new immersive theatre experience. Expect late night foxtrots, moonshine in teapots, glitz and decadence.
