The Trial of Josie K
About The Trial of Josie K
Josie doesn’t know what’s going on.
She goes to the meetings, she answers the questions, she’s doing everything they ask, but still, nothing she does is right. Sometimes adults just don’t make any sense.
Who is the man in the suit anyway, and why on earth does he want her to throw a custard pie at him?
Join Josie K as she finds herself caught up in an absurd situation, and needs her best mate Becca and all her courage to find her way out. Inspired by Kafka’s The Trial, this is a story of defiance, the power of friendship and finding hope, even in a world where no one has explained the rules.

This is kids' theatre at its absolute best.

Great fun, warm humour and compassion.
