The ‘Theatre of Heaven and Hell’ explores all aspects of drama from the sublime to the ridiculous, from the romantic to the horrific. ‘THE LESSON’ ticks all these boxes.
A young attractive student arrives for her first lesson. She is desperate to learn, and her tutor desperate to teach her. What is the worst that could happen….. ?
Eugene Ionesco’s radical views on education, life and death are buried deeply in this funny, disturbing and horrific play.
As the maid explains ‘Arithmetic leads to Philology, and Philology leads to Crime’.
THE LESSON by EUGENE IONESCO
