WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

A stage littered with liquor bottles and café chairs seamlessly transforms itself from the bistros of Paris to the banks of the Irati River; a long bar table roars to life and charges a champion matador; an out-of-control dance party takes off during a night of nonstop revelry. As the story winds its way through France and Spain and lands in Pamplona where bullfighting and the fiesta rage in the streets, Hemingway's narrator carries the heavy burdens of a war injury and his inability to have the woman he loves; a woman whose amorous escapades he follows with bemused but painful fatalism.

Created by acclaimed theatre ensemble Elevator Repair Service, The Select (The Sun Also Rises) is the third in a trilogy of literary adaptations along with Gatz (The Great Gatsby) and The Sound and the Fury.
