One morning in the office of a mysterious small business, an employee finds a copy of The Great Gatsby in the clutter of his desk. He starts to read it out loud and doesn't stop. At first his coworkers 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 him. Gatz is a theatrical and literary tour de force, not a retelling of the Gatsby story but an enactment of the novel itself. Over the course of 6 1/2 hours, the cast of 13 delivers Fitzgerald's American masterpiece word for word, startlingly brought to life by a low-rent office staff in the midst of their inscrutable business operations. Gatz will be presented as a marathon theatrical event, with two intermissions and a dinner break.
