    Theater: BAM Harvey Theater / 651 Fulton Street, New York, NY,

    Synopsis: 

    You wake up one morning to discover that you've turned into a giant bug. It's the stuff of nightmares, unless you're Kafka's oddly placid Gregor Samsa--more concerned about being late to work than anything else. Iceland's Vesturport Theatre and its fearless director Gísli Örn Gardarsson (who made their US debut with Woyzeck at the 2008 Next Wave Festival) present a topsy-turvy stage adaptation of Metamorphosis, whose protagonist leaps, scrambles, and skitters, telegraphing his mounting despair. Performed in English.
