For anyone who wasn’t already aware, today is the first official day of Spring – change is most definitely in the air. Have you woken up feeling different this morning? Hopefully the new season will have put a spring in your step and not made you sluggish and, well, buggish like poor Gregor Samsa, the main man – or rather, giant insect – at the centre of The Metamorphosis, the story we’re currently making our way through on Thursday evenings as part of The Evening Read-In.
So far, we have witnessed Gregor’s rapid metamorphosis from human to humongous bug, sharing his confusion and his family’s horror as they all attempt to come to terms with the quite literally life-altering changes. Having emerged briefly and causing considerable chaos, we left Gregor once more shut up in his room, shoved in by his father. What will happen to him next? You’ll just have to join us at 9pm this Thursday (22nd March) for Part 3. If you haven’t managed to make it along for Parts 1 and 2, then you can catch up at any time right here and here.
