About the event

Work In Progress Theatre and GKT Musical Theatre Society present Dinner With Gatsby

“I think that those people harm themselves and society...”

“marriage can only be between a man and woman, I shall not surrender my principles…”

“Something must be found, first, to restore women's desire to be married…”

When F. Scott Fitzgerald put pen to paper on his novel The Great Gatsby in 1924, the role of a woman was to concern herself with home, children, and religion. Her husband took care of business and politics, and every child was raised by a mother and a father, with clearly defined roles. Surely as a society we’re more forward-thinking 100 years on?

Pull up a chair as Dinner With Gatsby transports you into an era of opulence, rebellion, and unforgettable entertainment. Old money meets new, old-fashioned values are thrown out the window, and the exhilarating spirit of decadent parties, secret speakeasies, and pulsating jazz music takes over. But throughout all this, just who is this elusive Gatsby? What is it that makes him so revered across New York? And what sins does money conceal for these American socialites?

And the quotes? They’re all from current politicians. We’ll let you decide for yourself whether society has changed.
