Lyric Hammersmith, London
1 February 2024 - 2 March 2024

Franz Kafka’s shocking tale of cruelty and kindness re-imagined

Frantic Assembly and Lemn Sissay OBE collaborate on this thrilling new adaptation of Metamorphosis.

Combining the fluidity and lyricism of Lemn Sissay’s adaptation and Frantic’s uncompromising physicality, this promises to be an unmissable retelling of Franz Kafka’s shocking tale of cruelty and kindness; a visceral and vital depiction of humans struggling within a system that crushes them under its heel.

Metamorphosis runs from 1 February 2024 until 3 March 2024 at Lyric Hammersmith, London.

What's the story of Metamorphosis?

One morning Gregor Samsa awakes to find himself changed. To those around him he is dangerous, untouchable vermin. Worse than that, he is a burden.

A word said, an action out of place, the opening of old wounds, none of which can be undone. Until now Gregor has woken every morning, quietly left to take the same train, and worked to pay off the family debt. But that world explodes on this morning of brutal metamorphosis.

Who are the creative team of Metamorphosis?

Written by Franz Kafka; adapted by Lemn Sissay; directed by Scot Graham (Artistic Director of Frantic Assembly)

Commissioned and produced by Frantic Assembly, in a co-production with Theatre Royal Plymouth, Curve, MAST Mayflower Studios and Lyric Hammersmith Theatre
