Splendid Productions’ Metamorphosis (streaming video)
Are you normal?
Gregor Samsa is. He has a nice normal job and a nice normal family and lives in a nice normal house with normal wishes and normal dreams and a nice normal future to look forward to.
That is until the day he wakes to discover he has turned into a giant insect.
In a new creative adaptation filmed live on stage, Splendid Productions get their scrabbly little insect legs on Franz Kafka’s chilling story of dislocation, mutation and isolation and transform it into a slithering, creeping, wriggling, delightful, comical, tragical, musical, physical theatrical adventure for everyone who has woken up wondering: has the world changed, or is it just me?
