44Metamorphosis -as adapted by Berkoff
- Jan 25, 2002Hi there,
I'm a drama student studying Metamorphosis for an upcoming exam (I've
been cast as Grete (Greta)who will be my first female role).
Firstly i'd like to say that what i don't want is a simple "term-
I really appreciate Kafka's original but i'm having a bit of trouble
identifying what "period" the piece is exactly set in. I can get
general ideas from the costume-descriptions but unfortunately i'm a
lousy judge of fashion.
Mr Samsa is described (Berkoff) as appearing in the "costume of mid-
European lower middle-class tradesman -- trousers in socks --braces
no jacket, looking like Hindenburg." now that's all well and good but
is does that mean it's the 1940's or am i way out with my guess?
Thanks - Markk
