The Metamorphosis: After Kafka and Nabokov

Sunday 1 April

'Gregor Samsa awoke from unquiet dreams to find that in his sleep he had turned into a vile and verminous insect.' A new interpretation of Kafka’s work starring a live beetle. The Metamorphosis is one of the most famous short stories in the world. In a former life, novelist Vladimir Nabakov was an entomologist. He criticized many translations of Kafka’s work for inaccuracies in their details regarding the beetle that Gregor Samsa becomes. This new theatrical  interpretation incorporates Nabakov’s thoughts and puts Gregor – the man and the insect – side by side.
