Description

'One morning as Greta Samsa was waking from anxious dreams she discovered that in bed she had changed.' A female take on Kafka’s Metamorphosis, this one-woman show explores Greta’s navigation of family dynamics, and her transformation into a woman. By Sam Chittenden. Featuring Heather-Rose Andrews. 'Sam Chittenden’s script is salivatingly sharp and sensuous to the shell-likes' (BroadwayBaby.com). 'The audience leaves with that silent spellbound feeling that marks all great theatrical experiences' (BrightonSource.co.uk). 'This is a first-rank piece of storytelling' (FringeReview.co.uk).

I've been to see this show 3 times now. Every time I am still so moved and drawn in by the performance. Heather Rose Andrews is made for one woman shows and commands the stage: I couldn't take my eyes off her. Sam Chittenden's writing (writer of 5 star 'Sary') once again captivates audiences. Subtle and spellbinding, and a deep and thought-provoking reimagining of Kafka's famous novella. Brilliant.

A truly magical piece of theatre. Beautifully written and directed, with an excellent performance from Heather-Rose Andrews.

What a brilliantly written show with an intense and powerful performance by Heather-Rose Andrews. Loved the physicality and vocal shifts into the different versions of Greta Samsa, altering the audience’s perspective of who should have been the central character in Kafka’s story.

A fascinating and captivating insight into Greta, as she steps out of Gregor’s and Kafka’s shadows.
