Purdue Convos presents: The Great Gatsby

F. Scott Fitzgerald’s The Great Gatsby remains a vivid account of how, in the absence of true equality, pursuing the “American dream” can lead to devastating effects. Known for their powerful immersion in classic texts, New York City’s Aquila Theatre brings a relevant reimagination of this classic in which Gatsby is a man of color, setting the stage for themes of class, racism and discrimination to play vividly inside the meaning of the American Dream. Advance tickets available.
