Great Gatsby!

It’s 1922 and we welcome you back to prohibition Wilton’s.


SURELY there is no better place to experience this new and immersive 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, four years 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 Great Gatsby novel was originally adapted for the stage for Tour De Force Theatre
by Peter Joucla in 2011. Wilton’s Music Hall is producing a fresh and site specific
adaptation. Filled with live and evocative jazz music from the twenties 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….

      Is your seat still available?

    Does anyone have a ticket they don't want? I just tried to buy one and they are sold out. I'd be coming directly from a gallery opening, so I probably won't be there until 7:15, but I'll still make an effort to dress up.

    Are we all going to meet up in a particular place beforehand (I don't recall that there are any close by from the last time I was there) or somewhere at the venue?

    • Katie

    Wilton's last year had a production of this and i can honestly say it was brilliant. The atmosphere with people dressing up was fun. And if its the same cast they try to get you up dancing on the stage in the interval. i may be at this anyway due to me occasionally working there so i wont put myself as a yes.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
