‘Esteemed members of the Academy! You have done me the great honour of inviting me to give you an account of my former life as an ape.’
Imprisoned in a cage and desperate to escape, Kafka's monkey reveals his journey to become a walking, talking, spitting, smoking, hard-drinking man of the stage. Based on the short story A Report to an Academy by Franz Kafka, this new adaptation is by acclaimed writer Colin Teevan. Kafka's Monkey was performed to critical acclaim at the Young Vic Theatre in Spring 2009, and will return from the 19th May to 11th June 2011.
