"I cannot make you understand. I cannot make anyone understand what is happening inside me. I cannot even explain it to myself."

Gregor Samsa is a young man with a bright future. He has served as a soldier, he works hard and is unfalteringly polite. He plans to support his sister’s violin education and keeps his mother and father in the comfort they have become accustomed to in their retirement. Until one day, Gregor oversleeps his morning alarm and discovers he has become a gigantic insect. Feelings of revulsion turn to resentment with horrifying results.

In Kafka’s bizarrely comic tale of alienation masterfully adapted by Steven Berkoff, the barely concealed unconscious bursts onto the stage and plunges us into a bitter world of pain and absurdity. In a viscous merger of dream and reality, this stark allegory remains a very real signature of our present moment (and is very frightening to realise).

Theatre director Adam Broinowski brings his trademark stylization to this live dissection of outsiders and ’the pack'. Expect a darkly funny and deeply disturbing modern masterpiece.
