The Great Gatsby

To celebrate the re-opening of the wonderful Wilton's Music Hall following much-needed repairs, Peter Joucla's Tour de Force Theatre production of The Great Gatsby returns to the enchanting East End venue for a six-week run.

The audience are encouraged to dapperly dress in their 20s best for this night of jazz, glitz and Prohibition-themed decadence at the Wilton's speakeasy. There's no better way to get geared up for the belated summer release of Baz Luhrmann's The Great Gatsby movie.
