  • Kafka & Son

    Theaturtle/Threshold Theatre

    Sponsored by Edgewater Hotel

    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? In this case, Kafka wrote 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.

    Special Preview: Wed., Mar. 4,8 p.m. (Two-for-One).

    Contains mature content. Come experience all the anticipation, excitement, and thrill of a first encounter in Blind Date—a fly-by-the-seat-of-your-pants fusion of clown, improvisation, theatre, and social experiment. In this spectacular show we meet Mimi, a Parisian temptress, who is stood up by her date. Always the optimist, Mimi selects one fortunate new date from the audience (a different one every night!) to take his place. Heartwarming hilarity ensues as Mimi and her man embark on a spontaneous 90-minute adventure. A brilliant companion piece to Museum of Broken Relationships and War In Peace in the Public Art Gallery.
