GATZ

Dates: 26 Sep - 28 Sep

Tickets: €25

One morning in a low-rent office in a seedy corner of Manhattan, an employee finds a ragged old copy of The Great Gatsby in the clutter of his desk and starts to read it out loud… and doesn’t stop. At first his co-workers hardly seem to notice, until weird coincidences start happening, one after another, so that it’s no longer clear whether he’s reading the book or the book is in charge…

Performed by a remarkable ensemble of 13 actors, Gatz is not a stage adaptation of Fitzgerald’s famous novel but a verbatim staging of the entire book, accomplished by the staff of a small office in the midst of their increasingly bewildering business operations. Gatz is performed over a seven and a half hour period, with three intervals including one hour-long break. ‘Gatz creates its own dramatic universe. It illuminates a familiar text… One is left with a unique and lasting texture of amusement, insight and possibility.’
