Hans Christian Andersen's The Snow Queen like you’ve never seen it before, a rare theatrical hybrid of concert, storytelling, and movement that will cast a spell on adults and children alike.

At the age of 36, Franz Kafka was still living at home, a petty bureaucrat, a failed artist, a timid Jewish son. Ruling and ruining his life was his overbearing father, Hermann. What to do?

Adapted from this monumental letter, Kafka and Son is a blistering, often hilarious, dissection of domestic authority, and a revelatory visit with one of the architects of the modern psyche.
