GEDS PRESENTS "THE GREAT GATSBY" @ Théâtre Pitoëff

The breathtaking glamour, passion, and decadent excess of the Jazz Age come to life in this adaptation of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s classic novel.

This exquisitely crafted tale of America in the 1920s is narrated by Nick Carraway, an aspiring banker who gets dazzled by the glamorous upper-class crowd of Long Island. 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.

Directed by Christina Vasala Kokkinaki

Adaptation by Simon Levy
