Beetlemania: Kafka for Kids!
Kafka for kids? Karter thinks it's a brilliant idea. Kat just wants to have fun! And Karl wants a kebab... but someone very strange and very, very important has arrived to shut everything down. And Edinburgh Pest Control are planning on killing the show. Karl is keeping quiet because strangely, he's started growing extra legs.

Kafkaesque kraziness kreated by Pappy's Tom Parry and director Russell Bolam, who return to Edinburgh after their smash-hit adaptation of Gogol's Marriage: ***** (Stage).

Khaos! Kastles! Kreepy krawlies! For kids and big kids alike.

Recommended Age Guideline: 6+

This may be the most intelligent kid’s show this Fringe, and is, no doubt, also one of the silliest.

"You know you’ve done children’s theatre right when you have an audience made up of 95% adults, 5% children, yet everyone is crying with laughter."
