at The Elm Tree House | Mount Hope Farm


F. Scott Fitzgerald’s The Great Gatsby encapsulates the decadence and disillusionment of the Roaring Twenties in America. Set against the backdrop of New York’s wealthy elite, the novel follows the enigmatic Jay Gatsby and his relentless pursuit of the unattainable Daisy Buchanan. Through vivid prose and complex characters, Fitzgerald explores the themes of love, wealth, and the illusory nature of the American Dream. As Gatsby’s extravagant parties mask his underlying longing for a lost love, the story ultimately unveils a tragic tale of ambition, corruption, and the tragic consequences of a society driven by materialism and superficiality.

The Elm Tree House at Mount Hope Farm in Williamstown, MA, provides the perfect setting to stage an immersive theatrical production of The Great Gatsby, bridging the gap between the roaring 1920s and the present-day 2020s. By transporting the audience into the opulent world of Gatsby’s parties, the production will underscore the enduring relevance of Fitzgerald’s themes. Just as the 1920s were marked by excess and a desperate pursuit of the American Dream, the 2020s have witnessed similar patterns of societal turmoil and the quest for the unattainable. The immersive experience allows the audience to reflect on the parallels between the two eras, highlighting the continuing allure of materialism, the pursuit of love, and the ultimately hollow nature of the unfulfilled American Dream. As the audience steps into the world of Gatsby, they are reminded that the lessons of the past resonate with the challenges and aspirations of our own time.
