‘Esteemed members of the Academy! You have done me the great honour of inviting me to give you an account of my former life as an ape.’
Imprisoned in a cage and desperate to escape, Kafka's monkey reveals his journey to become a walking, talking, spitting, smoking, hard-drinking man of the stage. Based on the short story A Report to an Academy by Franz Kafka, this new adaptation is by acclaimed writer Colin Teevan.
