Infinithéâtre has announced their upcoming production of Kafka's Ape, starring Howard Rosenstein. The play is written by Kafka and based on his short story, A Report to an Academy. Guy Sprung adapted the play from the original German and directs the production.
Captured on the Gold Coast and imprisoned in a cage, Redpeter's only escape route is to become a walking, talking, spitting, hard-drinking member of the Peace Industry, the entrepreneurial world of mercenary soldiers - the single biggest growth industry of the 21st Century. In detailing the journey of his enforced evolution from apedom to humandom, Mr. Redpeter is a living embodiment of the irony that perhaps now he is more animal than he ever was as an ape.
Kafka's Ape will be presented at Infinithéâtre at Bain St-Michel, 5300, rue St-Dominique (corner Maguire). Performances are Tuesday to Saturday at 8PM, and a Sunday matinee at 2PM.
Tickets range from $17-$25. Infinithéâtre 6packs are available. Tonight's January 29 preview is 50% off. The performance on Sunday, February 3 is pay-what-you-can.
