Theatre Contra's The Lesson
A professor and his young student experience what must certainly be the most remarkable and bizarre lesson in the history of pedagogy. It ends with murder.

Written in the 1950's, Eugene Ionesco's absurdist play, The Lesson, brings to light society's all-too-relevant faults in ridiculous, hilarious, and gut wrenching ways.
