K. opening @ Chopin Theatre

K.

Greg Allen, Founding Director of The Neo-Futurists, brings his award-winning adaptation of Kafka’s The Trial to The Hypocrites. This two-act nightmare-comedy tells the famous story of how Joseph K. awakes one morning to find himself mysteriously arrested – seemingly without having done anything wrong. Caught in a sort of actor’s nightmare, K. must then navigate through officers, lawyers, artists, priests, lovers, and whippers to determine his fate. Highlighting the dark humor in Kafka’s parable, Allen employs masks, music, puppetry, and his trademark meta-theatrics to tell this surprisingly contemporary tale.
