The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald
Saturday 17th July 2021
Start time: 7pm
AGE 9+ | RUNNING TIME: 2 Hours 20 Mins
Join Heartbreak Productions and the Nick Carraway quartet for an evening of jazz, prohibition style. Nick is not only the band leader but a top-notch storyteller, and when he’s in the mood, he can take you back to the summer of 1922 when he lived next door to none other than the infamous Jay Gatsby.
Nick was working as a bond salesman in New York the summer he met the mysterious party-throwing millionaire. Before long, Nick finds out that Gatsby and his cousin Daisy (who conveniently lives nearby) used to be an item. Gatsby is still in love with Daisy, but Daisy is now married to the pretentious and unfaithful Tom.
So get your glad rags on, work up your best Charleston, and get your cocktail glass at the ready! Served up with a twist of iconic Heartbreak style, this outdoor adaptation of F Scott Fitzgerald’s The Great Gatsby is the perfect way to mark 100 years since prohibition. Dress for the weather, bring a chair or blanket to sit on, and don’t forget to order your picnic and Prosecco (now that prohibition has been lifted!).
Pre-book an indulgent picnic when you order your tickets online to collect from the Café on the night. Picnics will include sandwiches, sweet treats and cream scones and we can add prosecco or wine to make it extra indulgent. Please enquire by calling 01833 660 202 if you have not already added this to your booking.
This performance will take place in the open-air in our 18th century Walled Gardens at Raby Castle. Our gardens are accessible, but please get in touch if you require assistance. Normally our gardens are dog-friendly, but for this event we kindly ask that they are left at home, with the exception of guide dogs.
The production will still go ahead in rainy conditions so please note tickets are non-refundable. So dress for the weather and remember to bring a low-backed chair, rug or cushion to sit on.
