This September, Adelaide's Independent Theatre brings to the Space Theatre a thrilling new adaptation of the Scott Fitzgerald classic, The Great Gatsby.

Adapted by Rob Croser, this world premiere production will play for a strictly limited season from the 3rd to 12th of September 2015.

Never before seen on stage in Adelaide, The Great Gatsby is an iconic tale of lost love and The American Dream set against the backdrop of the Roaring Twenties.

Young New York stockbroker, Nick Carraway, rents a cottage next door to the enigmatic millionaire, Jay Gatsby. As they strike up an unlikely friendship, Gatsby reveals his impossible love for Nick's married cousin, Daisy Buchanan.

Since meeting and then losing Daisy during the Great War, Gatsby has made himself fabulously wealthy. He is ready to risk everything to woo her back from her insensitive society husband, and enlists Nick's help in reaching her. But Daisy has been changed by wealth, and Gatsby's dreams of re-kindling their love affair seems doomed to end in disillusionment and tragedy.

The Independent Theatre production remains faithful to Fitzgerald's novel and will feature the music and dances of The Jazz Age.
