Benedict Shaw / The Trial

Benedict Shaw / The Trial


Playing for two nights only at the New Diorama Theatre, BENEDICT SHAW in THE TRIAL on the 20th and 21st of May in the leading role of Josef K.

Josef K. wakes up one morning, hungry and disconcerted, only to find he has been arrested. He is not told why, nor by whom. He does not get to eat his breakfast. And so begins The Trial.

People Zoo Productions brings you this grotesque and darkly comic tale that tracks one man’s struggle against a malicious and faceless power. Fighting against ritual humiliation, impenetrable secrecy and unfathomable procedure, can Josef K. prove his innocence?

This is an award-winning adaptation of Franz Kafka’s classic novel, Der Prozess, written and developed by Matt Holt and Evelyn Roberts.
