To mark the tenth anniversary of Ruby in the Dust, the theatre company will be presenting their iconic production of Gatsby at the Union Theatre, where they had their first production in 2006.
Gatsby has been specially tailored to suit the seductive environs of the Union Theatre’s intimate space.
The characters of F Scott Fitzgerald’s novel The Great Gatsby – the epitome of glitz, glamour and the end of the American Dream – come to life as they weave their way through the famous story and unravel the mystery that is Jay Gatsby.
Gatsby was first presented by Ruby in the Dust in 2012 at the King’s Head Theatre, and again in 2013 at the Riverside Studios, and was greeted with sell out audiences on both occasions.
Ruby In The Dust have gained a reputation for integrating original music into the text, and in their decade as a theatre company, have proven themselves to be a launching pad for some of the exciting, emerging talent in the theatre industry, including Olivia Vinall (National Theatre), Matthew James Thomas (Spiderman and Pippin on Broadway), Jack Fox (Fresh Meat and Mr Selfridge), Daisy Bevan (Elizabeth and The Two Faces of January) and Matilda Sturridge (Pramface and The Borgias).
