Metamorphosis (2017/2018)

Metamorphosis (2017/2018)

Are you normal?

Gregor Samsa is. He has a nice normal job and a nice normal family and lives in a nice normal house with normal wishes and normal dreams and a nice normal future to look forward to.

That is until the day he wakes to discover he has turned into a giant insect.

In a new creative adaptation, Splendid Productions get their scrabbly little insect legs on Franz Kafka's chilling story of dislocation, mutation and isolation and transform it into a slithering, creeping, wriggling, delightful, comical, tragical, musical, physical theatrical adventure for everyone who has woken up wondering: has the world changed, or is it just me?

"The performance was stunning...
The cast were magnificent, a taut,
meticulous group who brilliantly
told their story”

Ross Geoghegan, Head of Drama,
Cotham School

"One of my all-time favourite
Splendid performances...
Storytelling of an extremely high
and innovative calibre delivered
by three incredibly talented actors."

Jannette Bloor, Director of Drama,
The Grange School

"...witty, tender,
and visually beautiful.”

Caila Carr, Subject Leader of Drama,
City of Norwich School
