One morning Mrs H wakes up and discovers that she is becoming ... a man! Inspired by "La Metamorfosi" by Kafka, "La Maschia" is the show scheduled for Saturday 21 September (9.30 pm) at the Manzoni Theater in Calenzano (Florence) as part of the Avamposti show organized by the Teatro delle Donne.

Written by Claire Dowie - author, actress and poet, among the most non-conformist figures of contemporary theater and among the most acclaimed of the London scene - and proposed here in the version by Stefano Casi and Andrea Adriatico, the text deals with the theme of gender identity .

Kafka's Metamorphosis returns in our age, transforming itself from a claustrophobic nightmare to an irresistible comedy, which puts the masculine and the feminine on a collision course; or rather, that with female eyes tells the psyche and the male body transformed into something that has more to do with a cockroach than with a macho.

Andrea Adriatico plays on the thread of gender identity, confronting himself with the work of Claire Dowie. To embody Ms. H is Olga Durano, lady of the scene, with Franco Parenti and Leo de Berardinis, but also an overwhelming comic actress with the Gran Pavese Variety and in historical television varieties such as "Drive In" and "TV for girls", before to be directed by the Adriatic in numerous shows, from "The homosexual or the difficulty of expressing oneself" by Copi to "Quai Ouest" by Bernard-Marie Koltès, from "Jackie and the others" and "A piece for Sport" by Elfriede Jelinek to "Is, Is Oil" by Pier Paolo Pasolini and "Ask who was Francesco" by Grazia Verasani.

Patrizia Bernardi was with Andrea Adriatico among the founders of the company: reflections and Teatri di Vita, where she worked in numerous shows (including, recently, "Is, Is Oil" and "A piece for Sport"); currently with the Animammersa association he is one of the protagonists of the cultural rebirth of L'Aquila. Alexandra Florentina Florea, singer and actress works with the Cantieri Meticci; with the Shebbab group Met Project won the Scenario Award for Ustica 2017 with the show "I Veryferici".
