Yikes! We’re getting the shudders just watching the trailer for Franz Kafka – Apparatus, which transfers to London’s White Bear Theatre next month after a hit run at Brighton Fringe. Meet the characters of this execution drama in our video series below – and then get booking!
Blue Devil’s premiere production of Franz Kafka – Apparatus, written and directed by Ross Dinwiddy, will run at London’s White Bear Theatre from 8 to 26 January 2019, with a press night on 10 January. In this five-star reviewed and award-nominated play from Brighton Fringe 2018, tragedy, comedy, horror and the absurd intermingle in a dramatic labyrinth of cruelty, obsession and madness.
The Traveller is only on the island for a few days, he’s no fan of the brutal penal colony there, but hopes to leave with plenty to write about. Today he’s scheduled to watch a man die, but nothing has prepared him for an hour in the company of The Officer – a powerful woman who is the keeper and guardian of the hellish Apparatus. And amongst all the horror and insanity just how could a sexual attraction lead to romance between The Condemned Man and The Soldier guarding him?
Dinwiddy’s take on Kafka’s classic tale is a macabre and at times darkly funny evening at the theatre where audiences are invited to attend a most unusual execution but will experience so much more.
Franz Kafka – Apparatus runs from 8 to 26 January 2019 at the White Bear Theatre, 138 Kennington Park Road, London SE11 4DJ, with performances Tuesdays to Saturdays at 7pm, and 4pm on Sundays 13 and 20 January. Tickets are priced £15 (concessions £12). CLICK HERE TO PURCHASE!
