Kafka’s Dick

by Alan Bennett
directed by Christena Jackson

This hilarious comedy satirizes our habit of showing less interest in an artist’s work than the meaningless details of their private lives, from eating habits to their sex lives. Franz Kafka nearing the end of his life makes his famous request to faithful friend & biographer Max Brod, that all of Kafka’s works be burned after death. Flash forward to a modern-day suburb where Sydney, insurance salesman and devoted Kafka fanatic, is laboring away at his article on Kafka for the company Insurance Journal “Small Print”. Who should miraculously appear on his door step but Kafka himself, with Max Brod in tow. You don’t have to be an expert on Kafka to enjoy the hijinks. But if you know a “Kafka Groupie”, you’ll want to bring them along for the fun!
