Is Gregor Samsa a bug wishing he was a man or a man wishing he was a bug?

AFTER METAMORPHOSIS is a dramatic reworking of Kafka's classic that weaponizes the surrealism of the original text into a wild rumpus; a satire of identity and conformity. 

Devised and performed by physical theatre artist Lewis Sherlock (Oceanallover, LARDS) and performance writer Ali Maloney (Caledonian Gothic, ANATOMY), AFTER METAMORPHOSIS scuttles about micro-cinema, physical theatre, and spoken word burlesques as it explores imposter syndrome, individuality in the corporate hive mind, and our relationship with the insect eco-system.
