Caged Kafka entertains in a canine tale

IT'S a dog's life as Alon Nashman discovered flyering from the confines of a small cage.

Dressed as Franz Kafka, he attracted an unexpected patron - a black dog which took a flyer. The cage features in Kafka And Son, which recreates a scene from the short story, The Hunger Artist, about a performer's desperate need for an audience. Well, they do say that Fringe acts often find themselves playing to one man and his dog. Kafka And Son, Bedlam Theatre, Bristo Place, until 28 August, 2.30pm, 12, 0131-226 0000
