Our production of 'The Great Gatsby':
Celebrating the return of the roaring twenties this New Year, we are bringing F. Scott Fitzgerald’s timeless classic The Great Gatsby to the Northcott stage – but we need your help to do it!
Throwing you into the glamour and scandal of American high-society in the Prohibition era, the show follows the story of the mysterious young millionaire Jay Gatsby and his destructive passion for Daisy Buchanan. Whilst their story is one of love and loss, the play alerts us to the ultimately tragic consequences of excessive wealth and the recklessness of youth - subverting the “American Dream” with disastrous consequences.
A cocktail of romance, deceit, money and morality, this is one big party you don’t want to miss.

Exeter University Theatre Company, fondly known as EUTCo, is one of the largest and longest running theatre societies at the university. Our goal is to get students involved in directing, producing, stage management, technical management and performing professional quality drama. The society provides a platform to produce innovative and high quality student theatre, in an effort to entertain and inspire the rest of the student body and the larger community in Exeter. In the new year, outside of our busy production calendar, EUTCo will be offering a number of workshops for members and non-members to engage further with the student body.
Our Previous Productions
In the past four years, EUTCo have produced a diverse range of productions at the Exeter Northcott Theare. These include, One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest (2015) for which EUTCo was nominated for Best Student Led Project, Angels in America (2016), Animal Farm (2017), A Clockwork Orange (2018), and most recently The Lord of The Flies (2019).
