Kafka's death-wish was for his works to be burned. His only friend, Max Brod, published them instead. Almost a century later, both suddenly appear in 1980s Leeds suburbia, the home of Sidney and Linda. Via a downtrodden northern wife, gratuitous humiliation of a tortoise, and the importance of phallic dimensions, Kafka's Dick roars from inter-war Prague to the cocktail party of posterity inside the Gates of Heaven. Brought into hilarious high-definition in the confined space of Corpus Playroom, Bennett's lightning-paced, 'irresistible farce' forces the audience to re-examine their notions of fame, reputation and respect.
