The Trial
By Franz Kafka / Steven Berkoff

The Trial

Steven Berkoff’s groundbreaking adaptation of Franz Kafka’s The Trial tells the story of Joseph K., a man accused of a crime which is never revealed to him. The play depicts Joseph K.’s tortuous attempt to discover the truth behind his arrest. The ensemble creates an ever-changing and ambiguous environment as Joseph K., struggling against an unknown authority, begins to question his sense of self and the very meaning of being human.
