Network Theatre Company presents:
Gatsby and Fay
By Adapted by Lio Lylark from "The Great Gatsby" by F Scott Fitzgerald, directed by Lio Lylark
When shy, closeted gay Nick Carraway attends a queer party hosted by the enigmatic Jay Gatsby, he has no idea the shit that’s coming for him. Gatsby is everything Nick isn’t – openly trans and queer, energetic, outgoing and hopelessly in love with Daisy Fay Buchanan, Nick’s married cousin.
Nick helps Gatsby and Daisy reunite, but Daisy’s manipulative husband Tom isn’t going to let her get away that easily. A story about queer growth and the dangers of pursuing the perfect romance, Gatsby and Fay is The Great Gatsby turned sideways. Get ready for fabulous parties, awkward love birds, laughter, tears, and as many homosexuals as the Network stage can support without collapsing.
This version of Gatsby explores themes of transphobia, manipulation, and abuse.
There is no explicit violence onstage, but this show contains references to: intimate partner violence, manipulation, victim blaming, death, grief, drunk driving, car accidents, transmisogyny, exorsexism, and harassment. Also contains strong language, weapons, and mild sexual content.
