The Metamorphosis

2006

The Metamorphosis
By Franz Kafka
Adapted by Steven Berkoff

Starring Lenny Ziolkowksi, Richard Lambert, Margo Davis,
Candice Kogut, Ray Boucher
Directed by Robert Waterhouse
Sets and Puppets by Franklin LaVoie

The cockroach was suggested by Lenny's physicality onstage and not by a silly bug custome. A discussion that I (Mike Klemm)
had with Richard Lambert and Bob Waterhouse over the translation of the book's first sentence in the original German resulted in Bob adding a line to the play where they debate the words insect and vermin. I was very touched. This production
was very well received and what
would have been a sold-out
final weekend fell victim to that infamous October storm that
knocked out half the area's power for almost a week. A few months after the show closed, Bob was contacted by a
publisher that had seen the cover design on our website
and were interested in buying it to use on the cover of
a new edition of Kafka. Ultimately the publisher went
with some famous art for the cover so that it matched
the other books in their series. Bob Waterhouse
posed two actors behind a scrim
to create that image.

Kurt Schneiderman would also win The Artie
award for his lighting design
