EXIT THE KING after E. Ionesco

EXIT THE KING after E. Ionesco

The King is dying but will not admit it. 400 years ago, he could control the weather and move people’s minds. Now he is truly an old man refusing to accept the inevitable, whose first wife wants him to face the madness and decay that come with the death looming over him. His second wife offers the comfort of pretence that it is not happening. Exit the King explores the meaning of those exits: both personal and collective  

’Funny, inspiring and provocative’.
