The Great Gatsby at Walkden Gardens, Manchester, 20 June 2021, from £13 - Book now

Marking 100 years since prohibition, join Heartbreak Productions and the Nick Carraway jazz quartet for this outdoor adaptation of F Scott Fitzgerald’s classic, The Great Gatsby.

The leader of the quartet and top-notch storyteller, Nick Carraway will take audiences back to the summer of 1922 when he lived next door to the infamous Jay Gatsby.

When he met the enigmatic party-throwing millionaire, Nick was working as a bond salesman in New York. Before long, Nick finds out that his cousin, Daisy Buchanan ( who lives close by) and Gatsby used to be an item. Gatsby is still in love with Daisy – however, she is now married to the pretentious and philandering Tom Buchanan.

The physically distanced and Covid-safe performance will take place come rain or shine. With a running time of 2 hours and 20 minutes, audiences are encouraged to dress for the weather and bring a chair or blanket to sit on.

The show is suitable for those aged nine and over, so get your glad rags on, prepare a delicious picnic and get your cocktail class at the ready.
