Directed by Ailín O'Donnell, adaptation by John Dwyer, from the novel by F. Scott Fitzgerald.
"I believe that on the first night I went to Gatsby's house I was one of the few guests who had actually been invited. There was music from my neighbour's through the summer nights. In his blue gardens men and girls came and went like moths among the whisperings and the champagne and the stars." Jay Gatsby has built his life around the dream of regaining a former love. He has even located his lavish mansion on West Egg, Long Island across the bay from Daisy's house for the sole purpose of seeing the green light on the end of her dock. A faithfully romantic dramatisation of F. Scott Fitzgerald's classic American novel and a stunning description of Jazz Age America - fast living, silent movies, jazz music and obscene wealth.
