WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Franz Kafka's Metamorphosis bursts onto the stage in a theatrically explosive new version by artistic director David Farr and actor/director Gísli Örn Gardarsson of Iceland's acclaimed Vesturport Theatre. The ordinary, unremarkable life of the Samsas is turned upside down when their son, Gregor, emerges one morning transformed into a monstrous insect. As revulsion turns to resentment, strange things start to happen to the Samsa family. Jaw-dropping physicality, striking design and an exquisite original soundtrack by Nick Cave and Warren Ellis combine to make Kafka's dream-like vision an electrifying reality. There are special matinee performances on October 21 & 28 at 2:30pm.
