KAFKA'S MONKEY

In Colin Teevan's stage adaptation of Kafka's disquieting short story "A Report to an Academy," an immaculately dressed lecturer addresses a group of scientists about his greatest achievement: transforming himself, out of direst necessity, from an ape to a human being less than five years earlier. Now a public entertainer at the peak of his career, Red Peter has a few things to say about the culture in which he's been forced to assimilate. He might also have a score or two to settle. Dale Wolf's remarkable physical acting and his long career in mime should ably bring out the beast. Dana Marks directs. —Byron Woods
