"It's in the nature of this judicial system that one is condemned not only in innocence but also in ignorance."

Picture this: A 30-year-old man going about his day, when suddenly without cause or warning, he is arrested while at work. Two unidentified agents from an unspecified agency arrest this man for an unspecified crime. While this story might sound as if it had been ripped from the headlines, it is from Franz Kafka's 1914/15 The Trial. Synetic Theater will explore the struggles of "K" and his encounters with the invisible Law and the untouchable Court. This production is recommended for ages 14+ for sexual situations.
