At the age of 36 Franz Kafka was still living at home, a petty bureaucrat, a failed artist, a timid Jewish son. Ruling and ruining his life was his overbearing father, Hermann. What to do? Kafka wrote, in this case a 50 page letter to his father in which he reveals deep connections between his life and his fiction. As he confesses in the letter “All my writing was about you.”

Adapted from this monumental (and undelivered) letter, Kafka and Son is a blistering, often hilarious, dissection of domestic authority, and a revelatory visit with one of the architects of the modern psyche.

Kafka and Son features actor Alon Nashman, selected as Toronto’s number one theatre artist of 2008 by NOW Magazine, and is directed by Threshold Theatre’s Mark Cassidy.

The show has traveled with acclaim across Canada and to the National Theatre of Iceland, where it ran parallel to the Theatre Vesturport (Iceland) and Lyric Hammersmith (UK) co-production of Kafka’s Metamorphosis. Kafka and Son completed a two successful runs in Edinburgh, at the Bedlam Theatre in 2010, and produced by Richard Jordan at Assembly in 2011 .
