About the Show/Event
Information for Franz Kafka - Apparatus at White Bear, Inner London (Play). You are cordially invited to a most unusual, mechanically achieved execution - death by means of a complex machine designed and constructed in a nightmare. A play based on Kafka's prophetically terrifying yet darkly humorous, In the Penal Colony - a dramatic labyrinth of cruelty, obsession and madness. The Traveller is only on the island for a few days, he's no fan of the brutal penal colony there, but he hopes to leave with plenty to write about. Today he is scheduled to watch a man die, but nothing has prepared him for an hour in the company of The Officer - a powerful woman who is keeper and guardian of the hellish apparatus.
Approximate runtime 60minutes (including any interval).
