An Idiopathicly “Magical Novel”

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.

ABOUT ANTI-HERO

ANTI-HERO

After two previous sold out Fringe performances, the creators of Heavy Metal Dance Fag return with a world premiere work that takes a satirical look our cultural obsession with vigilantes, violence, and heroes who do the wrong thing for the “right” reasons.

Antihero, Tribe of Fools’ latest creation, takes audiences on a journey with a character known only as antihero. Filled with fighting, parkour, and acrobatics, antihero is about one man’s quest to topple the Parking Authority with his fists. The play begins when four police officers are on trial for a Rodney King style beating. In the aftermath of this event, antihero, a graduate student named Simone, and a Parking Authority employee named Parker begin to circle each other in a story that takes a mirror to our society’s obsession with heroes and vigilantes and begins to consider the actual reality of the justice audiences see in comic books and in the movies.
