Kafka’s terrifying but bizzarely comic story bursts onto the Lyric stage in a theatrically explosive new version with original music by Nick Cave and fellow Bad Seed Warren Ellis.


Adapted and directed by David Farr and Gisli Orn Gardarsson

Music by Nick Cave and Warren Ellis



The ordinary unremarkable life of the Samsaf is turned upside down when their son, Gregor emerges one morning transformed into a monstorous insect. As revulsion turns to resentment, strange things start to happen to Samsa family…


For this brand new Lyric production Artistic Director David Farr joins forces with actor/director Gisli Orn Gardarsson of Iceland’s acclaimed Vesturport Theatre (Woyzeck, Romeo and Juliet): last seen at the Lyric as the acrobatic Walser in Nights at the Circus. With an exquisive soundtrack, striking design and jaw-dropping aerial physicality, Kafka’s dream-like vision becomes an electrifying reality.
