"Exit the King" Nov 7~9 2014

It’s tough to make a two-hour death-knell entertaining. Is there anything amusing about not wanting to die? Yes, if you are lucky enough to see Exit the King, a largely forgotten work by Eugene Ionesco, a French absurdist playwright. Directed by Bill Hand, this new production at the Old Theater is darkly laughable.

King Berenger the First is a 400-year-old monarch on his last wobbly legs. He rules over a crumbling palace and a ruined, shrinking country. His fate is sealed from the outset. “You’re going to die in an hour-and-a-half, announces his former wife, Queen Marguerite. “You’re going to die at the end of the play.” As the king clings to life with clownish zeal and real desperation, he is attended by his former and present Queens who must help him face the final inevitable truth of his demise.

Exit the King was first produced in 1963 and successfully revived to great acclaim on Broadway in 2009 starring Geoffrey Rush and Susan Sarandon.
