The Select (The Sun Also Rises): The giddy atmosphere of 1920s Paris and Spain explodes from the stage in this unique dramatisation of Ernest Hemingway’s classic first novel, The Sun Also Rises. Set in the jazz age of post–World War I Europe, a group of lost expats drinks away the horrors of war in a quest for freedom, love and life. Hemingway’s text is brought to life by the highly acclaimed New York ensemble Elevator Repair Service, directed by John Collins, in an energetic, riotous, genre-defying stage performance.
