START your new week with a gritty universal parable about the human condition – take a ticket for Monday evening’s Stantonbury Campus delivery, The Trial.
Forty years since the piece first played, and Steven Berkoff’s adaptation of Franz Kaftka’s work is a widely studied syllabus piece.
The Trial focusses on Joseph K, ‘an estranged and rootless citizen who is the victim of anonymous governing foces beyond his control.
Deceived by authoritarian power, he is relentlessly hunted down for a crime that remains nameless.
Finding himself arrested and awaiting trial, K sinks deeper and deeper as he tries to escape through twists and turns that are at once shocking, thrilling and funny.’
Blackeyed Theatre are the company putting this to the stage.
If you are looking for a slice of drama that manages to be original, fresh and endlessly surprising, take a ticket and let Berkoff’s brilliance enthrall.
Tickets are £12.50.
Show time is 7.30pm.
