The Great Gatsby

Sunday 1st Aug 2021, Shaw House, Newbury

Full Price £13 / Concessions Price £11

  • A man in tuxedo and a woman in evening dress standing together.

Join Heartbreak Productions and the Nick Carraway quartet for an afternoon of jazz, prohibition-style.

Nick is not only the band leader but a top-notch storyteller, and when he’s in the mood, he can take you back to the summer of 1922 when he lived next door to none other than the infamous Jay Gatsby.

So get your glad rags on, work up your best Charleston, and get your cocktail glass at the ready! Served up with a twist of iconic Heartbreak style, this outdoor adaptation of F Scott Fitzgerald’s The Great Gatsby is the perfect way to mark 100 years since prohibition.
