The Great Gatsby

The Great Gatsby


This event has been and gone.

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. Adapted within the grips of an international pandemic, 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).

COVID-19 SAFETY - To prevent the spread of coronavirus these performances will have: A socially-distanced limited audience; people leave the theatre directly through the fire exit (not through The Old Market Assembly); masks will be worn by everyone (as much as possible); hand sanitiser will be provided; increased ventilation; and there will be enhanced cleaning in the theatre before and after the show.
