Theatre Reviews

This show por­trays the strained rela­tion­ship between the writer Franz Kaf­ka and his father Her­mann. On one lev­el, this is a sto­ry about the dif­fi­cult rela­tion­ship between a son try­ing to find his place in the world and his demand­ing father. But, this show also clev­er­ly incor­po­rates sev­er­al themes present in Kafka’s work — alien­ation, aban­don­ment and inad­e­qua­cy. Alon Nash­man does a beau­ti­ful job por­tray­ing both char­ac­ters, espe­cial­ly the suf­fer­ing, tor­ment­ed son. Even the props are used strate­gic to rein­force the idea of being alone and trapped. You don’t often see a Fringe show that is so pol­ished and intel­li­gent. It’s bril­liant. Go see it.
