Full Cast Dramatisation
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 Kafka's father 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 comedy drama from award-winning Alan Bennett, and the performances of the starry cast are riveting.
