Theatre Excentrique Presents EXIT THE KING

Theatre Excentrique Presents EXIT THE KING King Bérenger the First is dying. His kingdom is falling apart. He can't rule over his army any more, nor tell the rain to fall, nor the trees to grow. He is dying and there is nothing he can do about it. Queen Marguerite is keeping track of time. "You will die in 1 hour and 30 minutes!" But the king refuses to listen. He chooses instead to love Queen Marie. "1 hour and 13 minutes left!" The clock is ticking... Surrounded by his two wives, his cleaning lady, his doctor and a guard, Bérenger is learning to accept the inevitable.

This is Ionesco's absurd style at its best: a meditation both burlesque and powerful on life, death and other incurable diseases.

Directed and translated by Anna Jahjah With Claire Crighton, Jay Duncan, Kirsty Jordan, Chris Miller, Gerry Sont and Alison Windsor Accompanied by Sister Ursuline
