Bug Boy Blues
by Lisa Railsback

BUG BOY BLUES is a fantastical journey into the mind of a young Gregor Samsa, who struggles to understand his family and make friends. "Grade school is a horrible place," Gregor says to the play's guide, Butterfly girl, just before they take a ride through time to show us what it is like to be ten-years-old and feel invisible. Gregor faces many challenges as a young boy, and finds solace in the bug world: a place to escape the "hustle-and-bustle" of life, freaky parents and of course a school of kids who just don't understand. BUG BOY BLUES is a quirky, fun, imaginative play for all ages loosely based on Kafka. It is what METAMORPHOSIS would be with funky dancing bugs, acrobatics, a live jam band and colorful, cartoon-like characters. This production is an adventure that will make you dance in your seat a little, too.
