Icarus’ blistering and award-winning production of Eugene Ionesco’s classic dark comedy returns to the stage. Following sold out runs at Teatrul de Comedie in Bucharest, among others.
A mild-mannered professor takes on a new pupil, and swiftly descends into tyranny, becoming bent on her destruction. A comically surreal exposé about power, knowledge and those who hoard both. All performances are enhanced by a bold projection design that features an exciting new Creative Captioning technology, ensuring that every performance is accessible for deaf and hard of hearing audiences.
Supported by Tracey Emin, Arts Council England, and Mantle.
