Kafka and Son
June 16 @ 4:00 pm - 6:30 pm$15 - $22
A one-man theatrical presentation adapted from a letter written by Franz Kafka, Kafka and Son is a blistering, often hilarious, dissection of domestic authority, and a revelatory visit with one of the architects of the modern psyche. The 1-hour play will be set to a recording of the powerful music of Osvaldo Golijov. The program will open with a musical performance of Golijov’s Lullaby and Doina.
At age 36, Franz Kafka wrote a monumental letter to his overbearing father that would change the course of his life and fiction forever. A blistering, often hilarious, dissection of domestic authority, Kafka and Son is a revelatory visit with one of the architects of the modern psyche. Developed by Alon Nashman with Mark Cassidy of Threshold Theatre, Kafka and Son has toured with tremendous critical acclaim as winner of “Outstanding Production” at the Prague, Canada, Germany, and South African Theatre Awards, and a five star sell-out hit on four continents.
