As promised, here’s a report back about my experience of The Great Gatsby at Spier earlier this week. We arrived on a rather overcast and chilly evening and yet everyone was there and dressed in their 20’s finest. I must say that everyone being dressed up really made the evening and created such a fun and vibrant atmosphere. We got to drink as much Spier wine as we wanted which was great but I must admit that we were disappointed by the food. I don’t think there was really enough variety and I definitely don’t think that boerewors rolls fall into the 20’s theme! However I thoroughly enjoyed the show, the cast was excellent and the fact that they managed to change scenes and switch between characters with such a small cast was amazing. No instruments or music to accompany them, just their own voices, really fantastic. I got carried away by the gorgeous flapper outfits and transported to an era of fun and decadence.
I do think that the tickets are a bit pricey but having said that, the evening was truly fantastic. So I’d recommend it! The show runs until the 31st of December. If you’ve been to the show, do let us know what you thought. Here are just a few snaps of the well dressed and a pic of me as well! Have a wonderful weekend!
