"As Gregor Samsa awoke one morning from uneasy dreams, he found himself transformed in his bed into a gigantic insect …"
One of Franz Kafka's most celebrated works, The Metamorphosis, is being brought to life in a stunning new production at The Fuse Box @ The Factory.
This stage adaptation, by Steven Berkoff, will play for a strictly limited season (3 shows only) from 31st March to 2nd April 2016 at 7pm each night.
Metamorphosis tells the terrifying and bizarre tale of travelling salesman, Gregor Samsa, who awakes one morning in the form of a monstrous vermin.
Locked away in his own room, Gregor becomes a nuisance to his family, who must not only learn to rely upon themselves but also deal with their disappointment and repulsion at what their son has become.
Just as Gregor´s emotions and movements transform from those of a human to those of an insect, so to does his family transition from horror and sympathy to ultimate betrayal…
Originally published in 1915, Metamorphosis is widely considered to be one of the seminal works of fiction of the 20th century. Many of the themes explored in the novella are still relevant today as they relate to the human condition and centre on concerns of appearance, health, family and finance.
Throwing Shade Theatre Company are an emerging group of Sydney artists who recently staged Enda Walsh's 'Disco Pigs', the tale of two inseparable and violent friends celebrating their seventeenth birthdays in Cork, to rave reviews.
