Join the Yale Club of Ireland at dinner and a performance of The Great Gatsby on Friday, July 7th.
The event will be graced by the presence of Professor Murray Biggs, who is leading an AYA educational trip to Ireland, focused on Irish theatre.
The event starts with an early dinner – contact Brian Lavery (email@example.com) if you wish to attend – followed by a performance of The Great Gatsby at the Gate Theatre. Tickets for the performance can be booked online and cost €28. You are encouraged to attend in period dress and the seats have been removed from the theatre, to facilitate riotous excursions into the human heart, which in this case means dancing and snooping around the corporate boxes.
The final part of the event will take place the following morning in the Merrion Hotel between 9am and 11am, where a discussion of the play will take place with a member of the cast.
“So we beat on, boats against the current, borne back ceaselessly into the past.”
