Ticketmaster Summer in Stages

The Lesson

Author(s): Eugene Ionesco
Company: Icarus Theatre Collective
Running time: 1h 10min approx

Icarus’s 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.
