by Franz Kafka, adapted for the stage by Steven Berkoff


“As Gregor Samsa awoke one morning from uneasy dreams, he found himself transformed in his bed into a gigantic insect”


A stage adaptation of Kafka’s famous novel in which a young man, who was the sole financial supporter of his family, awakes one morning in the form of a monstrous vermin. Locked away in his own room, he becomes a nuisance to his family, who must not only learn to rely upon themselves but also deal with their disappointment and repulsion at what their son has become.

“Direction by Andrew Langcake is highly stylised, appropriately so, with shades of Surrealism and German Expressionism. He creates a heightened aura within the story's sad circumstances, one that is both dreamlike and nightmarish.”

Suzy Wrong, Suzy Goes See
"Metamorphosis is a must see, it is a wonderful take on the Kafka classic."

Joy Minter, The Buzz from Sydney 

“Another great production in 2016 by Throwing Shade Theatre Company.”
