The Metamorphosis: Unplugged

The Metamorphosis: Unplugged

A warm-hearted theatre show with live music that tells the story of Gregor Samsa, an ordinary man who wakes up one morning to discover he has turned into a giant insect. Keen not to be late for work, unable to leave his bedroom and surrounded by his increasingly confused and neglectful family, Gregor’s story amuses and compels in equal measure.

Based on Franz Kafka’s iconic novella Metamorphosis, this ‘unplugged’ retelling of the story is performed by Tori Burgess (Pride and Prejudice* (*Sort Of)) and Fiona Wood (The Steamie) in an intimate, up-close setting.

From the same team that brought you The Dark Carnival: Unplugged - join us on tour around Scotland, as we welcome you to Gregor’s world with a free (though not compulsory!) glass of something for everyone.
