Review of Franz Kafka’s \'Report to an Academy\' starring Robert McNamara

Overall rating: 4.5

This was a curious but compelling piece based largely on the gripping performance of Robert MacNamana. A brief 60 minute Kafka adaptation, it is a one man show that balances the absurd and the literal. It was only on reflection that it occurred to me that MacNamara reminded me of Jack Nance.

The underlying dark humour pops up occasionally but the performance is pretty much a straight-faced account of how an ape learned to speak and the impact it had on society (of course, he ends up in a circus). It is an interesting companion piece to the voyage to the land of the Houyhnhnms, although it reaches very different conclusions.

MacNamara's performance is outstanding. Although there is a sense of menace, it remains subdued. It is pretty frightening though. The coordination with sound and lighting was spot on.

A very interesting and enjoyable show that should be seen.
