A young man falls ill with a debilitating illness. Unaware of the gravity of his situation he struggles to, but can no longer work. He loses his job and soon loses the respect of the family with whom he shares a home. This is Kafka’s Metamorphosis, a chilling piece of theatre, which speaks to us from the onset of a chilling time, published in 1915, and as witnessed by the text, written before the onset of the first World War.
