The Lesson

‘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.

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 D/deaf and hard of hearing audiences.

‍Supported by Arts Council England, and Mantle.

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

The Stage
