The Trial

Nové Theatre, Nitra, Slovakia, 2020
author: Franz Kafka
directed by Šimon Spišák

about the production

An absurdist-satirical production based on Franz Kafka’s epoch-making novel from 1915. Man in an
unfamiliar setting, taken captive by an ‘indecipherable’ situation, with no presumption of innocence,
privacy or rules. A social and personal mockery, and ultimately a sentence established in advance…
A chillingly relevant story?

The production The Trial replaced in the program of the Divadelná Nitra 2020 International Festival originally planned production of an Silent Night, Lightless Night, canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
