Archives - The Trial

by Steven Berkoff
Adapted from Franz Kafka

Directed by Jan Palmer Sayer

Friday 30th January – Saturday 7th February 1998 in the Auditorium

“Someone must have been telling lies about Joseph K., for without having done anything wrong he was arrested one fine morning…”

Kafka’s classic story is given a contemporary treatment in Berkoff’s adaptation of this fascinating tale. Joseph K.’s quest for the truth leads him into a labyrinth of intrigue as he first finds that he has been arrested and then found guilty — but guilty of what?

“There’s a lot of talent here,” said one lady member of the audience as we came out of the performance. I don’t think anybody could dispute that.
