Kafka's Dick
by Alan Bennett

'We prefer artists to die poor and forgotten, like Rembrandt, Mozart or Beethoven, none of whom did, quite.'

In a world obsessed with celebrity, it's no wonder that even the greatest authors are a target for rumours and gossip. And what better target than a writer who is better known as an adjective than read as a novelist. In Prague 1919, Franz Kafka is a dying man and his best friend Max Brod promises to burn all his unpublished works after his death. In present day suburban England, married couple Linda and Sydney are astonished when Max Brod turns up on their doorstep swiftly followed by Kafka himself. But it's Kafka who's in for a shock when he finds out that Brod did not burn all his work and that he's actually a successful published author. Kafka is appalled to discover that the intimate secrets of his life and work have become common knowledge…

A hilarious, fast-paced comedy from award-winning playwright Alan Bennett.
