Kafka's Joke

Event Details

The Desert Ensemble Theatre presents the world premiere of Kafka's Joke by Rich Rubin on March 10–12 and 17–19.

On his deathbed, Franz Kafka instructs his best friend Max Brod to burn his unpublished manuscripts. Brod does not destroy his work, believing Kafka is a literary genius. This leads to Kafkas writings rising to literary prominence decades after his death. Brod then escapes from Nazi Europe with Kafkas works in 1939, bringing them to Palestine. At the time of Brods death in 1968, he left the manuscripts to his secretary. However, Brods will is very confusing. Who owns Kafka? A true story based on a 2016 Israeli Supreme Court case.

Friday and Saturday evening performances are at 7:30 pm. Saturday and Sunday matinees are at 2:00 pm.

DET is committed to growing the art of theatre by producing innovative plays that underscore the complexity of human interaction. We nurture the growth of artists of all ages, on and off the stage, and create an environment that rewards and cherishes them.
