Kafka's Trial in St Albans

Kafka's Trial in St Albans

Trestle Arts Base in St Albans is staging Franz Kafka's The Trial this month.

Actor and acclaimed theatre maker Steven Berkoffs striking theatrical adaptation of Franz Kafkas classic novel The Trial comes to Trestle Arts Base this February.


The show portrays a world where justice and freedom seem strangely elusive.


Joseph K soon finds himself alternating between despair and frustration as it becomes more and more clear that the law with which he is attempting to grapple is a thing of myth, rumour and supposition.


begins with the arrest of bank clerk Joseph K in his bedroom one morning for an unspecified crime, and follows his attempts to discover why this occurred, and how he can acquit himself.


The Trial combines physical theatre, Brechtian-style staging and live music in a production by Resident Director (Participation) James Williams, whose recent successes include the Palaces community musical Hello, Mister Capello and Hertfordshire County Youth Theatres Gullivers Travels and The Arsonists.


Presented by Watford Palace Theatre in partnership with Hertfordshire County Council Standards and School Effectiveness.


The play is on Wednesday, February 16 2011 at 7.30pm at Trestle Arts Base, Russet Drive, St Albans, AL4 0JQ. Tickets: 8 Cons / 10 Adults / 32 Family. Suitable for ages 13+. Runtime approx 70 minutes.
