As we spend time with the unusual party, it becomes clear that Kafka's wish was for anonymity, and also that he had serious issues with his father. When his parent turns up, he is in possession of a very personal secret relating to his son, one which Kafka is terrified he will disclose.
This is a brilliantly clever, fast-moving dramedy from award-winning Alan Bennett, and the performances of the starry cast are riveting.
I so enjoyed this production, that I listened three times on the trot!
Witty, clever, it has it all.
I won't give the story away, too many reviews do, but if you like Alan Bennett - listen!
If you like Kafka listen!
If you like witty - listen!
If you like plays... Need I say more!
This is a good production of Bennett's surreal comedy. There are some good ideas here but ultimately it doesn't quite rank with other Bennett plays.
