Outcry Youth Theatre is presenting The Great Gatsby in person to friends and family members and via live stream to everyone else! The show is set in the spring of 1922, as the shy, reserved Nick Carroway has just moved east to become a bond salesman and is enthralled by the lavish parties that his next-door neighbor, the multi-millionaire Jay Gatsby throws. It seems like Gatsby is living the dream in his huge mansion, but he is pining after the love of his life, Daisy, who is married to former football star Tom Buchanan. Can Nick bring Gatsby and Daisy together? If so, at what cost? Outcry’s newest adaption of this tale of bootleg drinks, fast cars and lost love brings the roaring twenties to life, a century later.
