This is a six-legged nightmare by Franz Kafka. It is Kafka's terrifying but bizarrely comic story in a theatrically explosive new version. The ordinary, unremarkable life of the Samsas is turned upside down when their son Gregor emerges one morning transformed into a monstrous insect. As revulsion turns to resentment, strange things start to happen to the Samsa family...This work is published in collaboration with a brand new production at the Lyric Theatre Hammersmith by Artistic Director, David Farr with actor/director, Gisli Orn Gardarsson of Iceland's acclaimed Vesturport Theatre. The production has an exquisite soundtrack by Nick Cave and Warren Ellis, striking design and jaw-dropping aerial physicality.
