  Metamorphosis at Woolly Mammoth Theatre


Woolly Mammoth Theatre
641 D St NW Washington

Fresh from their popular and critically acclaimed presentation of The Vaclav Havel Project in Washington, DC and The Prague Fringe Festival, Alliance for New Music-Theatre presents a dark and comical interpretation of Franz Kafka's iconic work through the lens of this season's theme, The Outsider's Outsider. Kafka, the son of a German-speaking, Jewish family living as outsiders in Czech-speaking Prague, imaginatively creates an alter-ego figure, Gregor, also the son of a dogmatic father and otherwise claustrophobic family, who inexplicably wakes up to find himself transformed into a giant insect, and is further ostracized as an outsider living in the midst of his family.

With weirdness and comedy, the Alliance for New Music-Theatre stages Kafka’s story about a young man’s transformation into a dung beetle, preserving Kafka’s dark detail and expanding on the insect experience.
