Transformations is three incredible solo performances of classic stories in fresh, contemporary new adaptations by emerging playwright Gareth Jandrell. Directed and produced by Rachel Valentine Smith and Mark Leipacher as part of their celebrated Reptember Reloaded solo season.
Cervantes' Dialogue of the Dogs, performed by Natasha Rickman:  
Woof. Woof. Grr. That is all dogs have to say isn't it? What if it isn't? What if they had desires, needs and dreams, and what if we could hear them? 

Goethe's Faust, performed by Christopher Hughes:  
What makes a man good? What says he is a saint, or a sinner? When we look at the minutiae, the answers are clear. The Devil is in the detail, after all. 

Kafka's The Metamorphosis, performed by Tom Radford:  
Gregor is a salesman. Gregor wakes up like he does every day. But Gregor's back is a huge dome. And Gregor's little legs are small and swing wildly. What to do?
