WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
F. Scott Fitzgerald's captivating story of romance and betrayal is brought to life in Simon Levy's finely crafted adaptation for the stage.
Simon Levy, whose works also include stage adaptations of Tender Is the Night and The Last Tycoon, captures the power of Fitzgerald's narrative and the sheer beauty of his prose in this haunting and heartfelt snapshot of the Roaring Twenties, vividly depicting the rise and fall of the notorious Jay Gatsby and the alluring and dangerous Daisy Buchanan. Much more than simply a story of lost love, The Great Gatsby recreates the Jazz Age world of youth, wealth, privilege, and reckless abandon.
