‘As Gregor Samsa awoke
one morning from uneasy dreams he found himself transformed in his bed into a
monstrous insect.’

The Metamorphosis is a
new adaptation of Franz Kafka’s classic story of a man whose society causes him
to feel so isolated and worthless that he physically transforms into a giant
insect.

Kafka's Prague in 1915 was full of confusing bureaucracy, indecipherable
regulations and a host of reasons why Gregor should grow to consider himself
utterly worthless. Today, our world bustles along with little time or energy to
notice those around us and social media bombards us with images of perfect
people with perfect lives. 

Following his shocking metamorphosis Gregor finally begins to realise
what it means to be human. But is it too late? As his mind adapts to his new
life Gregor struggles to hold on to his humanity, and his family begin to
undergo their own transformations.







Franz Kafka's story of a misfit trying to adapt to his busy world is as
relevant now as it ever was. This new adaptation of a classic tale of
alienation explores the ways modern life conspires to isolate us, and the parts
of being human which bring us closer together.
