Infinitheatre - Kafka’s Ape Captured on the Gold Coast and imprisoned in a cage, Redpeter's only escape route
is to become a walking, talking, spitting, hard-drinking member of the Peace Industry, the entrepreneurial world of mercenary soldiers that is one of the biggest growth industries of the 21st century. In detailing the journey of his enforced evolution from Apedom to Humandom, Mr. Redpeter is a living embodiment of the irony that perhaps now he is more animal than he ever was as an Ape.

“Spung's adaptation is smoothly done, reinventing the story for today using the
elements of contemporary culture. Howard Rosenstein knocks it out of the park in the
title role. Bravo! At just over one hour's duration, Kafka's Ape is fascinating,
provocative and funny. Don't miss it."

Pat Donnelly, Montreal Gazette
