"Amerika" play in New York Fringe Festival
- Hi everyone
My name is Alexander Poe, I'm a writer/director in New York City and
I've written a play inspired by Kafka's Amerika which I'll be
directing in August as part of the New York International Fringe
The play is a farcical journey through the mind of Franz Kafka as he
finds himself trapped in the world of his own novel. Tired of his
suffocating life in Prague where he's forced to endure his overbearing
father and sadistic coworkersKafka decides to start a new novel, but
one morning he wakes up in the world of his novel and everything
begins to go wrong.
As you can tell, the play is more of a comedy than a straight forward
adaptation of Amerika or a biographical play about Kafka. It is
however faithful to the details of Kafka's life and while it's not
necessary to know everything about Kafka in order to enjoy the story,
I think it would be particularly interesting for people who know
something about his work.
The play runs from August 12th til the 25th.

Thanks, hope some of the New York based members of the group can come
check it out. Talk to you later,
