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. Based on Kafka’s short story A Report to an Academy, Kafka's Ape is a theatrical tour-de-force. Born in 1883, Kafka is one of the most influential authors of the 20th Century.
