AN acclaimed take on Franz Kafka’s The Trial will be staged at Lancaster Grand Theatre today (Thursday, March 29).

More than 40 years after its first performance, Steven Berkoff’s adaptation is now viewed in dramatic circles as a classic work of 20th century theatre and it remains a popular syllabus piece.

A spokesman for the Grand said: “Kafka’s universal parable about the human condition is retold in Berkoff’s startlingly original, fresh and endlessly suprising play, which Blackeyed Theatre brings to the stage at the Grand.

“Kafka’s nightmare vision, Berkoff’s cracking script and Blackeyed Theatre’s trademark ensemble-style physical theatre combine to create an inspiring and unforgettable piece of drama, ideal for lovers of pure theatre and those studying the ‘Berkovian’ theatre style.”

The show starts at 7.30pm.

Tickets, priced £13 (£10 concessions), are available from the Grand’s box office on 01524 64695 or at www.lancastergrand.co.uk.
