Theatre Wakefield presents Infinitheatre’s Kafka’s Ape

Captured on the African Gold Coast and imprisoned in a cage, the ape Redpeter’s onlyredpeter escape route is to become a walking, talking, hard-drinking member of the Peace Industry – the entrepreneurial world of mercenary soldiers that is one of the biggest growth industries of the 21st century. In his journey of enforced evolution from Apedom to Humandom, Mr. Redpeter is a living embodiment of the irony that he is perhaps now more of an animal than he ever was. Based on Franz Kafka’s short story A Report to an Academy, written in 1917 – the worst year of the Great War – this updated version of the story, entitled Kafka’s Ape is touring Toronto, Stratford… and Wakefield!  Buy tickets.

Written by Franz Kafka

Adapted and directed by Guy Sprung, starring Howard Rosenstein, with Alex Montagnese. www.infinitheatre.com
