Working with exciting writer Chris O'Connor and celebrated writer Richard Bean (One Man Two Guvnors), we have developed a new script for 2021 where we take on Kafka's The Trial in a hilarious and terrifying 90 minutes that speaks of humankind's current predicament.
Due to Covid restrictions we were unable to share our new piece with you at our usual rehearsed reading. Instead we produced an online preview in partnership with LBT and The Civic, Barnsley.
As ever, this was a beautifully composed, created and captured production; immensely thought provoking and relevant. The underscore, cinematography and delivery were captivating.

Wow, just watched the Trial. Amazing... and a bit mental! Such a great production, really loved the translation from theatre into film - thought you've captured it so well. The acting and the sound was so good!
Rachel Rogers, Reform Radio
Just watched @ProperJobTheatr's mesmerising adaptation of Kafka's The Trial and feel reenergised about the future of new theatre in the digital age. Sharp, visually stunning and just the right amount of mad. (And superbly acted too!)
Brendan Weakliam, Actor/Musician
