The Lesson

Icarus’ blistering and award-winning dark comedy returns to 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 comes to the Grand Opera House Studio. 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.

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

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

Post-show discussion on Thursday evening. There will be a short break/interval between the end of the performance and beginning of the discussion
