The Great Gatsby, written in 1924, is a deeply moving and honest portrayal of class, racism, and prejudice in American society. In what was originally titled, Under the Red White and Blue, F. Scott Fitzgerald painted a vivid picture of how the quest for the American dream in the absence of true equality can lead to devastating effects. Revisit the story of “self-made” Jay Gatsby and his pursuit of the wealthy Daisy Buchanan through the fresh perspective of Aquila Theatre’s new adaptation, which speaks to this American classic’s continued resonance within American culture. This timely story reveals a culture where success seems to be defined only by wealth, obsession masquerades as love, and prejudice is used as a weapon to bolster one’s fragile sense of self.
