Franz Kafka

Directed by Walter Meierjohann

"Esteemed members of the Academy! You have done me the great honour of inviting me to give you an account of my former life as an ape."

Imprisoned in a cage and desperate to escape, the ape-man reveals his rise through the ranks of the beasts to become a walking, talking, spitting, smoking, hard-drinking man of the stage.
