AudioGo Release Kafka The Musical Starring David Tennant

AudioGo, the home of BBC audiobooks, have made Murray Gold's award winning radio drama Kafka The Musical available to purchase as an audio download from their UK site. The play starred David Tennant as Franz Kafka and was originally broadcast on BBC Radio 3 in 2011. It has since won BBC Audio Drama Awards for both David (Best Actor, 2012) and for writer Murray Gold (the Tinniswood Radio Drama Award 2012 for Best Radio Drama Script). 

AudioGo say:

Murray Gold's new play starts from the suitably Kafkaesque premise that Franz Kafka finds he has to play himself in a musical about his own life. The play - or is it the musical? - introduces Kafka and the audience to some of the key characters in his life, Milena Jesenska, Dora Diamant and Felice Bauer. David Tennant stars as Kafka, in a performance that won him a "Best Actor" award at the BBC Audio Drama Awards. Music by Murray Gold. Directed by Jeremy Mortimer.

The play costs just £1.99 and is available now.

  1. This is GREAT, I loved this when it was on the radio. It was so touching, and funny in places, too. But I ended up crying..
