Kafka's novels and short stories have been adapted to the stage, to the screen, to dance and even to the ice. Kafka has turned into photographs, art instillations and T shirts (I've owned four of those). But I have not heard (not that it might not have already happened) of his letters taking their turn across the boards - except for his Letter To My Father. I would take the guess that Kafka's epistolary output is double all his creative work, so there is a wide seam to mine.
