New York City
San Francisco’s Cutting Ball Theater opens its 2008-09 season with Eugène Ionesco’s Victims of Duty. Choubert and Madeleine enjoy a quiet night at home in their petite bourgeois flat where "nothing ever happens." An unexpected knock at the door brings a detective whose simple interrogation quickly becomes a mind-bending journey. Director Rob Melrose brings Ionesco’s most surreal and autobiographical play, featuring Felicia Benefield, Avery Monsen, Ryan Oden, and David Sinaiko.
