Metamorphosis Tickets – Lyric Hammersmith

Gregor Samsa wakes one morning to find himself changed. To people all around him, he is now dangerous, untouchable vermin. But even worse than that, he has become a burden.

An action out of place, a word said, the reopening of old wounds, none of which can be now undone. Gregor has woken up every morning until now, quietly leaving to take the same train, to work to pay off his family’s debt. On this morning of brutal metamorphosis though, that world now explodes.

Frantic Assembly and Lemn Sissay OBE collaborate on this exciting new adaptation of Metamorphosis at the Lyric Hammersmith in their first commission since 2019. Fusing the lyricism and fluidity of Lemn Sissay’s adaptation and Frantic’s relentless physicality, this production promises to be an unmissable retelling of Franz Kafka’s shocking story about kindness and cruelty; a vital and visceral depiction of human beings struggling within a system that will happily crush them under its heel.

The Lyric Hammersmith is a medium size venue located on King Street, W6, close to Hammersmith Underground Station, and has a capacity of 586 seats on three levels.

Premium seats in the theatre are primarily located in the centre of the Stalls, along with the front of the Circle which both offer great options for large-scale musical productions, giving you a complete panoramic view of the stage. Seats in the Stalls generally offer great views of the action, due to a good rake in the seating and its proximity to the stage.

Well-priced and cheap seats can be found at the rear of the Stalls, which offer a great overall view of the stage at a reduced price. Sitting in the back of the Circle is also good value for money with clear-view seating from an elevated position. bargain hunters looking for lastminute tickets on a strict budget should look at options in the Upper Circle.

From £18.00
