MTC's Kafka's Monkey

A Saturday autumn afternoon at MTC's Kafka's Monkey. But before we get in...a power failure. Power is back on after 45 minutes.

This one woman show from the Ypung Vic in London is a bravura performance by Kathryn Hunter.

She is absolutely Kafka's ape who has taken on human speech and clothing but still retains very ape-like mannerisms. A performance meant to test just where the ape/human line is. Does it work? Kinda! Not sure immediately what Kafka was trying to achieve. Therefore what you do walk away with is the memory of Kathryn's performance.
