Set in the summer of 1922, in the heady atmosphere of "Jazz Age" New York and Long Island, The Great Gatsby weaves a compelling love story through sub-plots of uncertainty about Jay Gatsby’s identity and the rumoured sources of his wealth.
Is Jay Gatsby a hero, or a villain?
The story is told through the eyes of Gatsby’s young neighbour, Nick Carraway, who is tempted by the riches and of the lavish parties at Gatsby’s waterfront mansion. Nick wavers between contempt for Gatsby’s dubious lifestyle, and sympathy for Gatsby’s unswerving devotion to the unattainable Daisy.
Despite his doubts, Nick is drawn into the final stage of Gatsby’s plot to woo Daisy back from her philandering husband Tom.
As the mists of confusion are swept away in Gatsby’s confrontation with Tom, the main characters make choices that lead to unforeseeable, tragic results.
