Today’s podcast features Tina Brock of Idiopathic Ridiculopathy Consortium. It wouldn’t be FRINGE without a submission from IRC. This year’s offering, Franz Kafka’s The Castle. Stay Tuned!
ABOUT FRANZ KAFKA’S THE CASTLE
The Castle is at once hilarious and horrifying. Penned in 1926 in German, The New York Times called The Castle Kafka’s “most magical novel”; critics describe it as his “most beautiful and emotional work of fiction”. The IRC’s spin on it begins with a black comedy invoking the absurdity of Fawlty Towers, the plot intrigue of The Maltese Falcon, and the sinister menace of a “house of mirrors world” in Lemony Snicket’s A Series of Unfortunate Events.
The Idiopathic Ridiculopathy Consortium, recognized for its hilarious, well-crafted, accessible productions of complicated works by absurdist-leaning authors, continues its 2013 season featuring the Philadelphia premiere of Czech novelist and playwright Franz Kafka’s The Castle, as part of the 2013 FringeArts Festival at The Adrienne Theater, running September 3 through September 22, 2013.
