At Wilton's Music Hall: The Great Gatsby
It’s 1922 and we welcome you to prohibition Wilton’s for the stage adaptation of The Great Gatsby. Surely there is no better place to experience the adaptation produced by the Wilton’s Team and directed by Peter Joucla. Expect late night foxtrots, moonshine in teapots, pearls and flappers, bootleggers and millionaires.
Published in 1925, a year before the catastrophic collapse of the American stock markets, Fitzgerald’s novel graphically portrays a society being destroyed by money and dishonesty, an American Dream of happiness and individualism degenerating into the mere pursuit of wealth.
This book was recently adapted for the stage for Tour De Force Theatre by Peter Joucla, Wilton’s will provide a fresh and site specific environment. Filled with live and evocative jazz music from the Twenties and recreating the glitz and decadence of the period, you are invited to the party.
Dress in your Twenties best, it’s all happening at Wilton’s speakeasy….
