Théâtre de la Ville, Paris
Based on texts by Eugène Ionesco
Directed by Emmanuel Demarcy-Mota

Cake, hilarity, and interpersonal follies abound in this feat of repartee and wordplay from acclaimed director Emmanuel Demarcy-Mota and Théâtre de la Ville, Paris. Seven actors enliven the tragicomic stylings of playwright Eugène Ionesco—who made light of life’s shadows as one of the leading figures of the Theater of the Absurd—in this mashup of five texts: The Bald Soprano; The Lesson; Frenzy for Two, or More; Jack, or The Submission; and French Conversation and Diction Exercises for American Students. Staged as an unruly dinner party, ensemble members don hats and wigs, debate over whether a snail and a tortoise are the same thing, and gradually lead one another quite astray.

Texts from Jack, or The Submission, Delirium for Two, The Bald Soprano, The Lesson, and Conversation and French Speech Exercises
Music by Jefferson Lembeye & Walter N’guyen
Set and lighting design by Yves Collet
Costumes by Fanny Brouste
