In the Penal Colony

This event is in the past. This is an archive page for reference.

Following last year's compelling and provocative I Am Yusuf And This Is My Brother, director Amir Nizar Zuabi and his groundbreaking Palestinian company ShiberHur return to the Young Vic with a dramatic retelling of one of Kafka's most terrifying fables of violence, alienation and injustice.

Deep in the dungeons, a man, unaware of his crime, is about to be strapped into an elaborate execution device. The Executioner shows no mercy but will The Visitor intervene?

This powerful new production comes to London direct from a tour of Palestine.

In the Penal Colony is performed in Arabic, with English surtitles.
