    Michaelmas Week 8

    "I was arrested last week. I haven't been able to book any flights. I can't take out more than £20 at the cashpoint in one transaction. Also my Boots card used to have 1900 points on it, and now they've all just vanished from the system."

    On his thirtieth birthday Joseph K is arrested and nobody will tell him why. Thrown headlong into a confusing and illogical maze of bureaucracy and strangeness, K faces the impossible task of holding onto an ever- shifting reality.

    Tom Basden's darkly comic adaptation of Kafka's classic novel The Trial relocates the story to twenty- first century London, collapsing the boundary between K's world and our own and tapping into the fear that our lives are not our own.
