Insane and hilarious play about the size of Kafka's genitalia and the burning of his manuscripts.

Hilarious and quite profound in it's way. As a play, it is subject to misunderstanding. It is not about Kafka, or only secondarily. It is actually about biography, the problem of assessing another's life, especially when that person is an artist. It features Kafka because that man's life is the most extreme modern case of an artist's work being itself extremely enigmatic, but serving to further obscure his life and character rather than reveal it.

Kafka’s Dick by Alan BennettOutré, but for all the provocative, somewhat outrageous title, this play has some serious topics, if approached in a jocular manner.We have plenty of literary, at times psychoanalytical, then psychological references to Fitzgerald, Hitler, Freud, Proust and many more writers and famous figures.From the start, we listen to a dialogue between Franz Kafka- Max, I want you to burn all my works- Franz, you really want to do this- Yes, it must be done- All right, burn, b [...]

There is a slightly stronger hint of acid in this piece than I have found in other Alan Bennett works and it doesn't sit quite as well with me. The stabs at fame are just a little petulant in places and though this may well be appropriate to Kafka's perceived wishes it feels like some of Bennett's exasperations may be getting an airing too. The double entendre's stemming from the business of the title are just a little forced but having said all that the witty wordplay and underlying warmth do a [...]

[image error]Strange and mildly amusing play by Alan Bennett as heard on Radio 4OT= Great author Franz Kafka, and his friend Max Brod (brilliantly played by Michael Cochrane), are resurrected in the home of Kafka fan Sydney. Things become very complicated, not helped by the appearance of Kafka senior, who seems to pose the answer concerning Franz's little problem

As usual Alan Bennett is witty and thought provoking at the same time

Whity, smart and juvenile. A great play, the best play of Bennet's I've read to date.

A ridiculous but amusing play, that introduced me to Kafka. A light hearted recording that is cleverly written to incorporate humor into a play about an influential author.

Not as wonderful as "The Lady in the Van", but definitely a really delightful play.
