The Metamorphosis: Unplugged

Thu 19 May


£16, £14, £8 under 16


A warm-hearted, musical, cabaret style night out that brings Franz Kafka’s hugely influential, tragicomic, iconic novella vividly to life.

The Metamorphosis: Unplugged
Created by Vanishing Point
After the story by Franz Kafka

Two excitable cleaners are tidying up the remains of a children’s party when they stumble across a copy of Franz Kafka’s funny and compelling story, The Metamorphosis – the mysterious tale of a man who wakes up one morning to find he’s turned into a giant insect. Intrigued by the opening sentence they begin to reimagine the classic tale for our times, using the story to transform our view of the world.

The Metamorphosis: Unplugged is a warm-hearted, acoustic, cabaret-style retelling of the story, from the team that brought you The Dark Carnival: Unplugged.

Directed by Vanishing Point Associate Director Joanna Bowman and performed by Daisy Ann Fletcher (Cinderfella) and Fiona Wood (The Steamie).

Welcome to Gregor’s strange world where you are invited to enjoy a free (though not compulsory!)  glass of  something.
