Your class will travel back in time to the giddy atmosphere of 1920s Paris and Spain as Ernest Hemingway’s classic first novel, The Sun Also Rises, explodes from the stage in this unique dramatisation. 

Set in the jazz age of post-World War I Europe, a group of lost expats is on a quest for freedom, love and life. Hemingway’s text is delivered word-for-word (abridged for the stage) by the highly acclaimed New York ensemble Elevator Repair Service in an energetic, riotous, genre-defying stage performance.
