Michael McClure’s Josephine: The Mouse Singer, based on Franz Kafka’s short story ponders the trials of the artist in an arbitrary universe. McClure’s exuberant, inspired adaptation, reminds us of the bizarre whimsy Kafka’s tales were originally intended to be. Josephine The Mouse Singer received The Village Voice’s prestigious Obie award for the Best Play of the Year.

“A play of extraordinary wit and grace and wisdom, at once utterly charming and almost unbearably painful, a play which tells us that the relationship between artists and their society is often intolerable, but which also tells us that for a society to endure without its artists is impossible.” - Village Voice
