Rory Kinnear stars in this classic, timeless tale of ordinary terror by Franz Kafka.
Josef K’s 35th birthday begins with a knock on his door from three sinister agents. They’re from an unidentified agency, here to arrest him for unidentified crimes.
But this is no birthday prank - this is life or death.
So begins K’s dark descent into a waking nightmare of bizarre humiliations and compulsive procedures.
"Rory Kinnear is a national treasure." The Independent
