Scott Fitzgerald's THE GREAT GATSBY adapted by Simon Levy, directed by Wendy Overly, which opens previews on Friday November 24, 2017, and closes on Sunday December 17, 2017.

Midwest native Nick Carraway arrives in 1922 New York in search of the American dream. Nick, a would-be writer, moves in next-door to the mysterious millionaire Jay Gatsby, just across the bay from his cousin Daisy and her philandering husband, Tom Buchanan.

Thus, Nick becomes drawn into the captivating world of the wealthy and -- as he bears witness to their illusions and deceits -- narrates a tale of impossible love, dreams, and tragedy that embodies the breathtaking glamour and decadent excess of the Jazz Age.

Founded in 2010, Burbage is a 501(c)3 nonprofit theatre organization based out of Pawtucket, RI.

Burbage was started by four actors who wanted to take the craft of acting out of the classroom and into the hands of the greater theatrical community. We believe that acting comes first. We believe the theatre's continued relevance as a civil institution is best perpetuated by building productions around the collaboration of an expert ensemble of storytellers.

We believe it is the actor's job to activate thought and inner movement in his audience.

Burbage produces innovative and spare, actor-centric and inherently theatrical plays that speak to the culturally rich and diverse artistic community of Pawtucket RI. Burbage makes theatre accessible and affordable for a new generation of theatre-goer.
