Théâtre Excentrique brings Ionesco’s iconic play back to Australia in a new production featuring the baroque music of cellist/vocalist extraordinaire Sister Ursuline. King Bérenger the First is dying. His kingdom is falling apart. He can’t rule over his army anymore, 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 one hour and 30 minutes!' But the king refuses to listen. He chooses instead to love Queen Marie. 'one 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.
