‘As Gregor Samsa awoke one morning from uneasy dreams he found himself transformed in his bed into a monstrous vermin.’
The critically-acclaimed Beyond The Horizon in association with Birmingham Old Rep present their haunting, twisted reimagining of Franz Kafka’s absurd tale.
One morning, Gregor wakes up and doesn’t feel quite right. He soon realises that – seemingly for no reason whatsoever – he has been cursed with an affliction unlike any other. Before long the metamorphosis takes hold of his mind and his loved ones, transforming their love for him into disgust and his love for them into torment.
Beyond The Horizon take advantage of state-of-the-art makeup and prosthetic effects to present Gregor’s transformation in exquisite, ultra-realistic detail, in a journey that will both transfix and chill audiences to their core.
