Metamorphosis Trip

Published 9 October 2023

On the 27 September, I went to watch a Frantic Assembly production of ‘Metamorphosis’ in Southampton along with Year 13, 12 and 10 students who are studying Drama. This play is about a young man called Gregor who turns into a bug, and how his family cope with this Metamorphosis.This play explores themes of family pressures, isolation and change. Frantic’s classic use of movement retold the story expertly. They also explored the cost of living, which made the piece more relevant to a contemporary.

This was a captivating performance, which I thoroughly enjoyed. Go and see it if you get the chance.
