Publisher's Summary

Richard Griffiths, Alison Steadman, and Peter Woodthorpe star in this BBC Radio 4 version of Alan Bennett's acclaimed comedy/drama stage play. Present-day Kafka aficionado Sydney and his wife, Linda, are visited by the long-dead Kafka and his friend Max Brod (with whom Kafka had left instructions for all his works to be burned; instructions which Brod chose to ignore).

As we spend time with the unusual party, it becomes clear that Kafka's wish was for anonymity, and also that he had serious issues with his father. When his parent turns up, he is in possession of a very personal secret relating to his son, one which Kafka is terrified he will disclose.

This is a brilliantly clever, fast-moving dramedy from award-winning Alan Bennett, and the performances of the starry cast are riveting.

    "I Just Love Alan Bennett! Third Time Of Listening"

    I so enjoyed this production, that I listened three times on the trot!

    Witty, clever, it has it all.

    I won't give the story away, too many reviews do, but if you like Alan Bennett - listen!
    If you like Kafka listen!

    If you like witty - listen!

    If you like plays... Need I say more!

    "Good production - decent play"

    This is a good production of Bennett's surreal comedy. There are some good ideas here but ultimately it doesn't quite rank with other Bennett plays.
