Josef K. wakes up one morning, hungry and disconcerted, only to find himself arrested. He is not told why, nor by whom. He does not get to eat his breakfast. And so begins ‘The Trial’. People Zoo Productions brings you this grotesque and darkly comic adaptation of the Franz Kafka classic novel that tracks one man’s struggle against a malicious and faceless power. Fighting against ritual humiliation, impenetrable secrecy and unfathomable procedure, can Josef K. prove his innocence? Kafka’s novel, adapted for stage by Evelyn Roberts and Matt Holt, is as relevant today as it has ever been. This production is part of the 2016 Greater Manchester Fringe Festival and will also go on to run at the Edinburgh Fringe.
