BY FRANZ KAFKA
ADAPTED BY DAVID FARR AND GISLI GARDARSSON
The Samsa family have their ordinary, everyday lives turned upside down when their son Gregor wakes up transformed into a monstrous insect. Revulsion turns to resentment as they contemplate continuing to reognise Gregor as part of their family. A new adaptation of the iconic Kafka tale; Metamorphosis is highly physical, terrifying and bizarrely comic.
As the ordinary and everyday become unusual and hostile, what would it be like to be completely transformed and yet still desperately need to belong?
