This hilarious and unusual play satirizes the ridiculous propensity we often have to show less interest in an artist's work than in meaningless details of his private life, such as his sex life. It begins with Kafka near the end of his life making his famous request to his friend Max Brod that his works be burned at his death.

The penultimate scene takes place in Heaven, where Kafka observes: "I'll tell you something. Heaven is going to be hell."
