In June 2012, JHI worked with Elevator Repair Service as part of LIFT to present the 8 hour long epic of GATZ. With a cast of 13, this enactment of The Great Gatsby still stands out as one of the most remarkable achievements in theatre of this decade for us.
One morning in the office of a mysterious small business, an employee finds a copy of this great American novel in the clutter on his desk. He starts to read it aloud and doesn't stop…
At eight hours long the task to sell this American epic to a paying audience, who could sit at home and read the novel themselves, JHI created ‘must-see’ event status at the Noel Coward Theatre. The show then received five star reviews across the board and the audiences were unanimous in their testimonials of this being an unforgettable theatrical experience.
