The Metamorphosis is the story of an ordinary man who wakes up one morning to find he has been transformed into a giant insect. Soon he begins to realise he’s got bigger problems than being late for work. His family, shocked by his bizarre condition, barricade him into his room, unwilling to accept that somewhere inside this behemoth of a bug is their son.
Franz Kafka’s hugely influential, tragicomic, iconic novella is brought vividly to life in this international co-production between Vanishing Point, Emilia Romagna Teatro Fondazione in Italy and Tron Theatre, adapted and directed by Vanishing Point's Matthew Lenton and designed by Kenneth MacLeod (The Dark Carnival).
Following these dates, THE METAMORPHOSIS UNPLUGGED, an intimate, musical, touring version of the show, directed by VP Associate Director Joanna Bowman, will scamper across Scotland to village halls and smaller venues in May and June. Dates to be announced.
