The Metamorphosis: Unplugged

Fri 15 May


£15, £13


Two actors re-imagine Kafka’s tale of an ordinary man who wakes up to discover he is an insect.

Meet Gregor Samsa, an ordinary man who wakes up one morning to discover he has turned into a giant insect.  Keen not to be late for work, unable to leave his bedroom and surrounded by his increasingly confused and neglectful family, Gregor’s story amuses and compels in equal measure.

Based on Franz Kafka’s iconic novella and the recent theatre spectacular, this new, live music, unplugged version tells Gregor’s story with just two actors in an intimate, up-close setting.

A free (though not compulsory!) glass of something welcomes you to Gregor’s world.

★★★★ …”this pocket-sized reimagining conjures up a cabaret-styled sprite of a show”… Neil Cooper – The Herald on The Dark Carnival: Unplugged
