DePaul's Fullerton Stage
Gregor Samsa, an overworked salesperson, wakes up from disturbing dreams to find that he has transformed into an insect-like creature. His new condition disorients the Samsa family household who depend on him for their bread and butter. Gregor can’t communicate, can’t get enough to eat, and he certainly can’t head into work. His desperation grows, as does his family’s, as the world they thought they knew is turned upside-down.
Adapted from Kafka’s novella, this surreal and disturbing account of a dysfunctional family is directed by Kelvin Wong, MFA Directing, Class of 2015.
How do we cope with extreme instances of nonconformity?
