"Rare and marvellous... With Kenneth MacLeod's multi-layered set conjuring up all kinds of theatrical magic."
The Scotsman on The Dark Carnival
"one of the UK's most singular theatre companies"
The Guardian on Vanishing Point
The Metamorphosis is the story of an ordinary man who wakes up one morning to find he has been transformed into a giant insect. Soon he begins to realise he's got bigger problems than being late for work. His family, shocked by his bizarre condition, barricade him into his room, unwilling to accept that somewhere inside this behemoth of a bug is their son.
Franz Kafka's hugely influential, tragicomic, iconic novella is brought vividly to life in this international co-production between Vanishing Point, Emilia Romagna Teatro in Italy and Tron Theatre in Glasgow.
