Award-winning dark comedy The Lesson comes to Waterside

Jerome Ngonadi and Hazel Caulfield

Award-winning dark comedy The Lesson is coming to Sale’s Waterside on Wednesday 21st September.  

A mild-mannered professor takes on a new pupil, and swiftly descends into tyranny, becoming bent on her destruction. The Lesson is a comically surreal exposé about power, knowledge and those who hoard both.

Following international stagings, which include a sold-out run at Teatrul de Comedie in Bucharest, Icarus’ blistering and award-winning production of Eugene Ionesco’s classic dark comedy comes to Waterside in Sale as part of a national tour this September.

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 deaf and hard of hearing audiences.
