Description:

The breathtaking glamour, passion, and decadent excess of the Jazz Age come to life in this lively adaptation of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s classic novel.
Set in America in the 1920s, the fabulously wealthy Jay Gatsby throws lavish parties in the hope of attracting the attention of his one love: the elusive Daisy, who is married to Tom Buchanan, a wealthy man of brutish and self-centred nature.

The tragic story of Jay Gatsby unfolds at a time when The New York Times noted "gin was the national drink and sex the national obsession”. Watch the wild parties of the roaring 20s come to life all the while bearing witness to the tragic consequences of the shallow excess and dangerously egocentric hedonism that characterised the day...and that perhaps have more relevance today than anytime since then.

Opening night patrons are cordially invited to join the cast and crew for a glass of bubbly after the show.

Location Théâtre Pitoëff, Geneva
