The Great Gatsby

The Great Gatsby by Francis Scott Fitzgerald – one of the most important novels of the 20th century – on the stage of the Słowacki Theatre! A tale of a great dream, great love, great disappointment and great emptiness. A tale of a world shaking off the dark times of war, throwing itself into the revelries of the Jazz Age.

Jay Gatsby's residence, the Valley of Ashes, Long Island, USA. The summer of 1924. Around 8 p.m. A string of posh limos pull into the driveway. The servants welcome the guests with broad smiles and champagne. Inside, you can hear the bustle and sounds of a jazz band tuning up. The overwhelming, dizzying scent of perfume, flowers, desire and money. And the constant questions: where is the host, how did he manage to invite the crème de la crème of New York?, and finally: who is this Great Gatsby? Suddenly there comes the music – swinging, rousing. Everyone hastily sheds their expensive coats and runs onto the dance floor. And you? What are you waiting for? Get in and party with us!
