The Great Gatsby
It's 1922 and you are welcomed to prohibition Wilton's.
Surely there is no better place to experience this new and immersive stage 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.
The 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 '20s and recreating the glitz and decadence of the period, you are invited to the party.
Dress in your '20s best, it's all happening at Wilton's speakeasy...!
This production is an adaptation of the book for the stage. There will be singing and dancing throughout the play in this version. The rooms at the front of Wilton's will be converted into various places, inspired by the book, before the show from 6pm, during the interval and after the show until 11pm. There will be live music after the show in the bar – they will be of the period bands, dancers, guest artists and so on. Audiences will be encouraged to stay and enjoy the whole experience. There will be of the period food and merchandise and dressing up accessories too.
