Beyond the Horizon presents
“As Gregor Samsa awoke one morning from uneasy dreams he found himself transformed in his bed into a monstrous insect.”Metamorphosis, Franz Kafka’s 1915
One morning, Gregor wakes up and doesn’t feel quite right. He soon realises that - seemingly for no reason whatsoever - he has been cursed with an affliction unlike any other... Before long the metamorphosis takes hold of his mind and his loved ones, transforming their love for him into disgust and his love for them into torment.
The critically-acclaimed Beyond The Horizon present their haunting, twisted re-imagining of Franz Kafka’s absurd tale. Beyond The Horizon take advantage of state-of-the-art makeup and prosthetic effects to present Gregor’s transformation in exquisite, ultra-realistic detail, in a journey that will both transfix and chill audiences to their core.

Luton Library Theatre
Luton Library Theatre opened in 1962 as a lecture theatre before gradually changing to a traditional entertainment venue with 256 seats and two side aisles.
The Theatre began to build up a programme of amateur and professional drama, film, music of all types and children's events. In fact a pretty long list of events that covers almost every taste!
All of this continued through the sixties, seventies and eighties. During the nineties the seating was changed to a more modern style and colour with a centre isle with a slight rake. This meant the amount of seating had to be reduced to the current capacity of 238.
In the late nineties and early noughties, there were more changes both fabric and technical makeup of the Theatre. This brings us up to 2009, when the Library itself closed for a major refurbishment. Some improvements were made to the front of house and bar areas of the theatre, plus the introduction of a new cafe.
Luton Library Theatre with it's 238 seated capacity auditorium and Bar Area. See Venue Hire for more information.
