Joseph K By Tom Basden

Wednesday 01 May 2019 to Saturday 18 May 2019

Secret House presents the Australian premiere of Joseph K by Tom Basden. Directed by Sean O’Riordan

On his thirtieth birthday, Joseph K has his sushi home-delivery intercepted by two unidentified agents who inform him he is under arrest. He has no idea what he's done wrong but he's determined to clear his name. As he tries to make sense of his situation and to confront those who threaten his freedom, Joseph is thrown headlong into a fight against an invisible and illogical law.
 
Inspired by Franz Kafka’s classic novel The Trial, Joseph K tells the story of a man who is arrested and prosecuted for a crime that is never revealed and his subsequent struggle against an inaccessible authority. 

Directed by Sean O’Riordan, Set Design by James Smithers, Costume Design by Hamish Elliot, Lighting Design by Alex Holver, Stage Manager: Milly Grindrod. Cast: Jane Angharad, Matt Bartlett, Georgia Brindley, Michael Brindley, Elouise Eftos, Phoebe Heath, Tim Kemp, Naomi Lees, Deborah Faye Lee, James Smithers and Danen Young.
