The Metamorphosis
Wed 13 – Sat 16 2022
Evening: 7.30pm.
The  story of an ordinary man who wakes up one morning to find he has been transformed into a giant insect. Soon he begins to realise he’s got bigger problems than being late for work. His family, shocked by his bizarre condition, barricade him into his room, unwilling to accept that somewhere inside this behemoth of a bug is their son. Vanishing Point take on Franz Kafka. Book here.
