The Lesson

Icarus' blistering and award-winning dark comedy returns to the stage.

'In this world of ours, Mademoiselle, one can never be sure of anything…'

Icarus' production of Eugene Ionesco's classic dark comedy comes to Winchester, following sold out runs at Teatrul de Comedie in Bucharest, among others.

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

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.

"It is impossible not to enjoy Icarus Theatre's production of Ionesco's one-act play."
