The monodrama Kafka’s Monkey performed by Kathryn Hunter, one of the greatest actresses in the UK, was produced by the Young Vic Theatre in London and premiered in March 2009. Since then, the show has been touring around the world and winning praise around the world.
Kathryn Hunter has recently performed in two plays of which Hideki Noda wrote in English, THE BEE (produced by NODA•MAP) and The Diver (produced by Setagaya Public Theatre) .These pieces impressed not only London audiences but also Japanese by her excellent phantasmagorical performance.
Kafka’s Monkey was adapted by Colin Teevan (co-writer of THE BEE and The Diver) from Franz Kafka’s short story A Report to an Academy (written and published in 1917), and through the long workshop process by Hunter and Teevan, the piece resulted in a theatrical gem.
Kathryn Hunter materialises the absurd world of Kafka with her exceptional acting skills, superb physicality and a lot of charm.

*Performed in English with Japanese surtitles
