“It is impossible not to enjoy Icarus Theatre’s production of Ionesco’s one-act play.”  The Stage

‘In this world of ours, Mademoiselle, one can never be sure of anything…’

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.

A dynamic projection design encapsulates the beating heart of Ionesco’s text and interweaves exciting new Creative Captioning technology to ensure that every performance is accessible for deaf and hard of hearing audiences.

Supported by Arts Council England, and Mantle.

“Timely and fascinating.” ★★★★ The Times
