In a shabby non-descript office an employee picks up a copy of The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald. He starts to read aloud and can’t stop! At first his co-workers hardly notice. But after a series of strange coincidences, it's no longer clear whether he's reading the book or the book is transforming them all into its characters.
Gatz is a theatrical tour-de-force — not a stage adaptation of Fitzgerald's American masterpiece or a retelling of the Gatsby story, but a thoroughly entertaining, utterly absorbing dramatisation of the novel itself. Just as the office worker can’t put the book down, you’ll be completely spellbound binging on this extraordinary theatrical experience.
After playing to sold-out houses around the world and gaining critical rapture and countless awards, this enthralling theatrical event is coming to Perth. Whether you know the novel or are discovering it for the first time, you’ll be caught up in the action as word for word The Great Gatsby is brilliantly brought to life by Elevator Repair Service, one of America’s most exciting theatre companies.
