Josef K’s thirtieth birthday begins with a knock on his door from two sinister agents. They’re from an unidentified agency, here to arrest him for unidentified crimes. But this is no birthday prank - this is life or death. So begins K’s dark descent into a waking nightmare of bizarre humiliations and compulsive procedures. The Olivier Award-winning Rory Kinnear (Hamlet, Skyfall) leads the cast of this new production, directed by Richard Jones and designed by Miriam Buether in a new adaptation by Nick Gill.
