Kafka's Monkey

By Colin Teevan

28 April 2009 – 09 May 2009 Beckett Theatre

Adapted from Franz Kafka

Malthouse Theatre, The Young Vic Company,

Theatre International Co-Production

Based on Franz Kafka's masterful short story A Report To An Academy, this bold new production from London's celebrated Young Vic is a luminous mix of absurdity and tenderness. Director Walter Meierjohann teams up with Irish playwright Colin Teevan, to create a stage adaptation of one of the milestones of modern literature.

 

"KATHRYN HUNTER CRAMS INTO A FEW MINUTES OF STAGE TIME MORE THAN MOST ACTORS ACHIEVE IN A CAREER ... THE MOST VERSATILE AND SHAPE-SHIFTING ACTRESS ON THE BRITISH STAGE."

— The Guardian
