Franz Kafka has been approached by a famous producer to start in a musical based upon himself. There are only two problems though: he can’t sing or act. But his participation will ensure a guaranteed hit! Murray Gold is an internationally acclaimed playwright and composer whose work has defined the mood of the current TV series Dr. Who. In this outing, Gold’s talents use the figure of Kafka to take us on a thrilling “hum-along” descent into madness. Just like Kafka we are kept guessing as to whether it is the main character who is coming apart, or whether he is the victim of a diabolical practical joke. Don’t be daunted by any preconceptions of the main character. Gold has made this musical romp accessible to all. At times funny, at times suspenseful, Kafka the Musical always demonstrates theatricality at its most entertaining. Originally commissioned by BBC as a radio play, we will be working personally with Mr. Gold in this world premiere stage adaptation.
“Blowing my heart as well as my mind with its superior writing, a poignant
story of love, death and regret that will haunt you.” —Radio Times
