Frantic Assembly – Franz Kafka’s Metamorphosis tour dates & new animated artwork revealed

Franz Kafka’s Metamorphosis, the latest show from Frantic Assembly has announced full tour dates running from September 2023 to 2 March 2024; and, released new animated artwork.

Frantic Assembly’s new adaptation of Franz Kafka’s Metamorphosis is a collaboration between internationally celebrated poet, playwright and broadcaster Lemn Sissay OBE and Frantic Assembly’s artistic director Scott Graham (Othello, Lovesong, Beautiful Burnout).

The show will premiere at Theatre Royal Plymouth from 12 September 2023, before touring the UK including a 4-week season in London at the Lyric Hammersmith Theatre from 1 February 2024.

This show is a powerful and vital depiction of humans struggling within a system that crushes them under its heel.  Gregor Samsa finds himself transformed from bread winner into burden in this absurd and tragic story.  Frantic Assembly are renowned for their use of physicality and movement and Metamorphosis is an inherently visceral production about the limitations of the body and the mind, of imagination and aspiration. All of this, coupled with the fluidity and lyricism of Lemn Sissay’s adaptation, promises an exciting and dynamic show.
