by Eugene Ionesco Directed by Jason Williams In the Feichter Studio Jan. 12 & 13 at 7:30 and Jan. 14 at 2pm (Hold Over/Snow Dates Jan 19, 20 & 21)

The idea for the play came to Ionesco while he was trying to learn English with the Assimil method. Impressed by the contents of the dialogues, often very sober and strange, he decided to write an absurd play named L’anglais sans peine (“English without toil”). Another working title for the play was Il pleut des chiens et des chats (“It’s raining cats and dogs”). The current title was set only after a verbal slip-up made by one of the actors during the rehearsals.  The play is considered a masterpiece of the Theatre of the Absurd movement of the 1950’s
