The Great Gatsby9 - 16 Sep

The Great Gatsby

Self-made millionaire Jay Gatsby’s destructive passion for Daisy Buchanan is played out against the background of Long Island society. Viewed through the eyes of outsider Nick Carraway, Gatsby’s life is the story of a generation – glitz and glamour turning sour and the high-life turning to ashes.

Stephen Sharkey’s adaptation of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s novel brilliantly evokes the world of breath-taking glamour and decadent excess that was America’s ‘Jazz Age’, the ‘Roaring Twenties’.

Skylight30 Sep - 7 Oct

Skylight

David Hare’s witty, poignant and deeply political play sees Kyra Hollis, a struggling but committed schoolteacher in London’s East End, visited unexpectedly in her cold and shabby flat by two figures from her past: first by Edward Sergeant, then by his father, Tom. Tom, now widowed, is a hugely successful restaurateur and self-made businessman - and Kyra’s former lover. As the evening progresses, the two duel over pasta, politics and possession, while attempting to understand the passions that both drive them apart and bring them together.

This acclaimed eulogy to the thousands of victims of 9/11 sums up the horror and lasting human damage of that day.
