"Theatre of the absurd" is so final. Improbable is more like it. In Ionesco's "The Lesson," The Professor is a devoted teacher, in love with sharing his knowledge to the young students who come to his home. Ionesco wrote the play in 1950. Its characters exhibit the trauma and dissociation of a society that has fallen apart. I'm playing The Professor starting Feb. 16-25, 2018. Directed by Gama Valle at Teatro Latea in the LES. Tickets available here.
