NYUs Gallatin School of Individualized Study will host four performances of The Trial, Stephen Berkoffs stage adaptation of the Franz Kafka novel of the same name, November 5-7 (7 p.m.) and November 8 (2 p.m.), at its Jerry H. Labowitz Theatre for the Performing Arts (715 Broadway at Washington Place/entrance on 1 Washington Place).
The performance is directed by Gallatins Kristin Horton, a clinical assistant professor whose works have appeared at Riverside Theatre, the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, and the National Black Theatre Festival, among other venues.
On the morning of his 30th birthday, two men arrest banker Joseph K for an unknown crime. As Joseph K races to determine what felony he has inadvertently committed, he gets lost in the maddening world of bureaucracy, law, and no answers.
The event is free and open to the NYU community ($10 for the general public), but tickets are required for entry. For tickets and a complete schedule of performances, go to Ticket Central. For more information, call 212.998.4941.
All group sales inquiries should be directed to Leah Hamos at email@example.com. No tickets can be purchased day-of at the theater.
