About this show

The absurdist classic The Lesson is a delightful and terrifying comic drama, merging the silly and the perilous, when an eager pupil arrives to meet with her professor. The Painting is Ionesco's pure theatre of "live antagonism, dynamic conflict, and motiveless clash of opposing wills" as a wealthy patron and a starving artist's linguistic slapstick sends-up both the bourgeoisie and the art world.
