In a land ruled by the Castle, Josef K arrives to start his new job as a land surveyor – but soon finds he is unwanted and unable to return home. A family is discreetly cast out after the daughter spurns the sexual advances of a high up official.
The Castle – Franz Kafka’s final masterpiece – speaks to our era of Me Too, Brexit and the migrant crisis. A searching, riotous voyage into what it is to be with or without power, in a land where it is a fight to be accepted.
Russell Bolam co-creator and director of the critically acclaimed hit Edinburgh show Beetlemania: Kafka for Kids! adapts and directs The Castle.
