Aug 5, 6, 9 & 10 2014

The Old Theater in Oriental is pleased to announce auditions for the November, 2014 production of Exit the King, written by Eugene Ionesco.

Exit the King is an absurdist exploration of ego and mortality, set in the crumbling throne-room of the palace in an unnamed country. King Berenger the First has only the duration of the play to live. Once, it seemed he ruled over an immense empire and commanded great armies. But now his kingdom has shrunk to the confines of his garden wall. Refusing to accept his end, he is attended by his present and former Queens who must help him face the final inevitable truth of his demise.

Exit the King was first produced in 1963, starring Alec Guinness, and successfully revived to great acclaim on Broadway in 2009. The Old Theater’s production will be directed by Bill Hand.
