ArtsEmerson: The World On Stage presents The Trial. Legendary director Orson Welles beautifully portrays Franz Kafka's nightmarish classic novel The Trial with a polished noir touch. Josef K, an unassuming office worker, awakes one day to find the police in his bedroom. They arrest him and put him on trial for a crime that is never explicitly told to him. The suspected guilt of K but lack of knowing any details keeps audiences on edge as a series of startling events unfolds in this dystopian, hellish trial. Welles' continued interest with the power of illusion continues in this uniquely filmic take on Kafka's work.
