2024 NEXT! Staged Reading Series: Jordan & Daisy (+ Tom + Nick)


Jordan & Daisy (+ Tom + Nick) by Johanna Keller
Directed by Lissa Sidoli

Synopsis: What if Nick Carraway, the narrator of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s The Great Gatsby (soon celebrating the centennial of its 1925 publication), didn’t know or didn’t reveal the whole story? In this play, the celebrity golfer Jordan and the rich and beautiful Daisy have a secret. And the only way to keep Daisy’s wandering but possessive husband Tom from figuring it out is to inflame his jealousy of the mysterious con-man Gatsby. Here, in a new play that weaves in and out of the novel, is another entirely possible tale of what was really happening, and what had to remain hidden in the glittering, decadent high society of the Roaring ‘20s.

The NEXT! play-reading series continues its mission to celebrate and inspire Central New York playwrights, as well as to introduce their work to a larger audience. Giving playwrights the ability to collaborate with local directors and performers, this series also welcomes the valuable feedback from the public which is critical to the development of any new work. Three plays  are selected each year on the basis of their literary and artistic merit, and are presented free to the public.
