Tom Basden's darkly comic stage adaptation of The Trial relocates Kafka's classic novel to 21st century London. 

On his 30th birthday, Joseph K has his sushi home-delivery intercepted by two unidentifiable men who inform him that 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. 

Joseph K is a brilliantly funny and fresh take on this 20th century classic.
