Black Box Fire presents Kafka’s THE METAMORPHOSIS Jan 14-22

The Metamorphosis

Based on the novel by Franz Kafka
Adapted by Charles DiZenzo
Directed by Lauren Repei

As Gregor Samsa awoke one morning from uneasy dreams, he found himself transformed into a gigantic cockroach”. The Metamorphosis tells the story of Gregor’s sudden, and unaccountable transformation into a giant cockroach and his family’s inability to see the situation beyond it being their own misfortune. Instead of extending their compassion towards Gregor’s plight, his family’s callousness drives Gregor to live out his days as a pest in the dark corners of his room. Charles Dizenzo has adapted Kafka’s famous story The Metamorphosis in which it’s black humour, absurdness and pathos are brought to the stage.
