A young student arrives for a private tutorial, but all is not as it seems: is her esteemed professor brilliant, befuddled, or simply insane? And what of the mysterious housekeeper who keeps interrupting? Written in 1951 and a classic example of “Theatre of the Absurd,” Ionesco’s brittle examination of knowledge and power retains its unique ability to both amuse and disturb its audience.
The show will take place on the Arena Stage of the Performing Arts Center, and will begin at 7:30 p.m. from Feb. 12th through 16th, closing with a matinee performance on the 17th at 2:00 p.m. Tickets are $10, $7 for students and seniors, and free with SCSU I.D.
