Kafkaesque – adjective 1. of, pertaining to, characteristic of, or resembling the literary work of Franz Kafka: the Kafkaesque terror of the endless interrogations. 2. marked by a senseless, disorienting, often menacing complexity.

As David Gardner, our Fels Dramaturg Intern states here, "When we call a situation “Kafkaesque” we mean to highlight its nightmarish atmosphere of horror and despair."

Have you ever felt that a moment in your life was totally 'Kafkaesque'?

You could win two free tickets to our Tria Wine Night on Friday, January 28, 2011 just by submitting your most Kafkaesque moment to our Facebook page.  

It's simple. Check out the videos of our director and cast of The Understudy discussing their most Kafkaesque moments, take out your digital recording device, record yourself discussing YOUR most Kafkaesque moment, and submit your video via Facebook and tag @TheWilmaTheater.

Get your friends, family, coworkers, and Facebook friends to vote for your video by 'liking' it. The video with the most likes will win!

During the Tria Wine Night, patrons are treated to a complimentary wine tasting before the show!

Be as funny, creative, or nightmarish as you like! Submit your video response by 1/13/2011!
