In a time where success is expected and excess celebrated, Jay Gatsby is a god among men, yet without the love of Mrs. Daisy Buchanan, he is unfulfilled. This fast-paced adaptation of Fitzgerald’s novel, by Simon Levy, brings the Jazz Age of New York to life as Daisy’s cousin Nick guides us through a world where love, opportunity, deception, and tragedy are always just around the corner.
