The Really Big Diamond
  • Edinburgh Fringe

An original musical based on F Scott Fitzgeralds The Diamond as Big as the Ritz; a grotesque allegory of the American Dream. A provincial young man, John, visits his wealthy school friend in the Montana Mountains. The Washington family happen to live in an exquisite chateau built on a mountain of solid diamond. They are threatened only by its discovery. Nevertheless, John is welcomed into their perfect world. Drunk on love and dazzled by everything, he fails to question the measures the family take to keep their secret.
