Report to an Academy
Scena Theatre Robert McNamara (USA)


An ape named Red Peter has evolved to behave like a human. He presents his fascinating tale of transformation – and the horrid details of his former ape life – to a top scientific Academy.

Based on the classic short story by the master of existentialist storytelling Franz Kafka.
Adapted for the stage by acclaimed German director Gabriele Jakobi
Directed by Gabriele Jakobi (Germany)
With Robert McNamara (USA)

Don’t miss SCENA’s wild parable brought to life. McNamara’s return to the stage is riveting. He will compel you to ponder the issues of free will, vegetarianism, and animal rights.
