How to Become Human in 5 YearsBobby Watson Theatre Company
With biting humor and stark earnestness, How to Become Human in 5 Years follows the apish Red Peter from his imprisonment in a cage to Broadway’s Theatre Stages. Adapted from Kafka’s A Report to an Academy, this celebrated one-man show subtly layers dark comedy, social satire and Kafka’s equivocal language to ask the question: What makes us human? facebook.com/BobbyWatsonTheatreCo
