Metamorphosis

MetamorphosisT2141369145
This lyrical and physical one-woman show takes a female perspective on Franz?Kafka's classic Metamorphosis. Usually an ?extra' in the story of Gregor Samsa's transformation into a 'monstrous vermin', we have set out to tell sister Grete's story. As Grete comes to terms with what has happened to her brother, she has to navigate the shifting dynamics of the family household, a difficult relationship with her parents, and her own painful transformation from child to woman. Along this journey she explores not only physical changes but her own grief, shame and self acceptance. In time, the Prague outside her window will bring its own dark threats. Drawing on the diaries and letters of Kafka and his favourite sister Ottla, the story echoes their real-life relationship and the difficult dynamics and tragic fates of Kafka's own family.
Author Sam Chittenden (after Franz Kafka)
