Gregor Samsa awakes from horrible dreams to find himself transformed into a colossal vermin. So begins Franz Kafka's most celebrated work--and this play that takes us inside Gregor's head to reveal the existential dread smoldering there. An ordinary family must cope with surreal tragedy when their son (who's also their breadwinner) becomes a disgusting creature. How strong will their loyalty to him prove? And what's the value of a human life... once it's no longer human? This large-cast adaptation raises questions that are as relevant now as they were when Gregor Samsa first crawled out of bed.
