The Metamorphosis

‘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.
