Exit the King
Pioneering the Theatre of the Absurd is not unlike founding the Donner Pass, as very few will ultimately trickle through and several will eat each other up in he process. Along with Samuel Beckett, Eugene Ionesco did help shepherd in the Theatre of the Absurd, but, as with any other survivor, he did it warily, looking over his shoulder the whole time and calling his creation "the Theatre of Derision." In his Exit the King we are witness to the last few hours of King Berenger as he unwillingly faces the end of his reign, the end of his kingdom (driven into the ground, quite literally, through narcissism, neglect, and incompetence - sound familiar?) and, ultimately, the end of himself. Just like in life, the end is foreseeable far in advance, but it's how you get there that counts. Join us as we throw in our lot with Ionesco at the height of his powers, wending us through the absurd twists and turns of a man who simply refuses to face the facts.

Opens Friday, January 23rd. Performances Fridays and Saturdays January 23rd through February 21st at 8 pm, plus an extra showing Thursday, February 19th at 8 pm.
