The Great Gatsby

Scott Fitzgerald’s masterpiece, The Great Gatsby, is a deeply moving and honest portrayal of class, racism, and prejudice in American society. Written nearly 100 years ago, this timely story exposes a culture in the 1920s where success is defined by wealth, obsession masquerades as love, and prejudice is used to bolster one’s fragile sense of self. The critically acclaimed Aquila Theatre’s Desiree Sanchez has created a new theatrical adaptation of Fitzgerald’s novel that speaks to the struggles of our current culture. With its remarkable set design, superb actors, and insightful direction, Aquila’s production of The Great Gatsby will be a stunning, inspiring, and not-to-be-missed experience at BIG ARTS.
