Step into the surreal world of Gregor Samsa, where one morning, his existence is radically transformed. No longer human, he is perceived as dangerous vermin, a burden to those around him.

In this poignant adaptation of Franz Kafka's Metamorphosis, Frantic Assembly and Lemn Sissay OBE join forces for their first collaboration since 2019. Witness the explosive unraveling of Gregor's predictable routine—his daily departure, the familiar train ride, and the relentless grind to settle family debts—all shattered on the morning of a brutal metamorphosis.

Through the unique lens of Lemn Sissay's adaptation and the uncompromising physicality of Frantic Assembly, this production promises a gripping reinterpretation of Kafka's tale. Brace yourself for a visceral and essential exploration of cruelty and kindness, as the characters grapple with the oppressive forces of a system that mercilessly crushes them under its heel. Don't miss this unmissable journey into the heart of Kafka's shocking narrative, brought to life with unmatched intensity and emotional resonance.
