The Young Vic’s production of Kafka’s Monkey begins its 10-day run at HOME this Wednesday (17 Jun). The one-woman show stars Olivier Award winner Kathryn Hunter, reprising her role playing a monkey playing a man, and is directed by Walter Meierjohann, HOME’s artistic director of theatre who recently directed the venue’s opening production, The Funfair. Kafka’s Monkey is derived from Franz Kafka’s 1917 story A Report to an Academy, with writer Colin Teevan’s adaptation first seen at the Young Vic in 2009, and again in 2011. Kathryn Hunter won an Olivier Award for her role as the millionairess in National Theatre’s The Visit, and has also appeared in Peter Brook’s Fragments, Mike Leigh’s All or Nothing, plus Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix.
