The Metamorphosis: Unplugged
Created by Vanishing Point
After the story by Franz Kafka

Two excitable cleaners are tidying up the remains of a children’s party when they stumble across a copy of Franz Kafka’s funny and compelling story, The Metamorphosis – the mysterious tale of a man who wakes up one morning to find he’s turned into a giant insect. Intrigued by the opening sentence they begin to reimagine the classic tale for our times, using the story to transform our view of the world.

The Metamorphosis: Unplugged is a warm-hearted, acoustic, cabaret-style retelling of the story, from the team that brought you The Dark Carnival: Unplugged.

Directed by Vanishing Point Associate Director Joanna Bowman and performed by Daisy Ann Fletcher (Cinderfella) and Fiona Wood (The Steamie).

Join us on tour around Scotland, as we welcome you to Gregor’s strange world with a free (though not compulsory!)  glass of the Dumfries & Galloway Arts Festival Dark Sky Whisky.

“this warm-hearted yet sometimes hard-edged reflection on life, death and eternity seems set to delight audiences up and down Scotland” The Scotsman on The Dark Carnival: Unplugged
