    About

    The live theatre debut of this unique two-woman retelling of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s masterpiece, a co-production from The Wardrobe Ensemble (Education, Education, Education) and The Wardrobe Theatre (Drac & Jill)

    “I’m going to fix everything just the way it was before,” he said, nodding determinedly.

    Invited to an extravagant party in a Long Island mansion, young bachelor Nick Carraway is intrigued by the flamboyant host, Jay Gatsby; a self-made, self-invented millionaire with a mysterious past. As the two strike up an unlikely friendship, a cocktail soaked story of memory, money and lost love unfolds.

    Founded in Bristol in 2011, this year marks a decade for both The Wardrobe Ensemble and The Wardrobe Theatre, an anniversary we’re celebrating with this exciting new collaboration. The Great Gatsby is a witty, creative new co-production from the people who brought you Education, Education, Education, The Last Of The Pelican Daughters, 1972: The Future of Sex, (The Wardrobe Ensemble) and Drac & Jill, Oedipuss In Boots, Rocky Shock Horror (The Wardrobe Theatre).

    Reviews
    • ****

      “Intricately inventive… It reels us in and distils the spirit of Fitzgerald’s story in its own small, beautiful way.”

      The Guardian
    • ****

      “Captures the essence of the novel and its resonance.”

      The Stage
    • “Filled with wry inventiveness… The show evokes as much nostalgia for when we could be in rooms getting drunk with other people, as it does for the roaring twenties.”
