The Martins are invited to dinner at the Smiths’ and the evening gets more and more peculiar… Mr and Mrs Martin no longer recognise each other, the maid thinks she’s Sherlock Holmes and thanks to the arrival of the local fire chief, the evening descends into chaos and mindless gibberish.
Performed in French, with English surtitles, this production explores the power of language and the breakdown of communication between the play’s characters. Ionesco deftly satirises almost all aspects of life in the play he famously referred to as “a parody of everything”.
This rambunctious and energetic production embraces the humour in Ionesco’s absurdist masterpiece. Expect an extravaganza of language, physical comedy, music, mime and endless silliness.
