‘Evening of Absurd’ starts tonight

An Evening of the Absurd” at 7:30 p.m. tonight-Friday, April 19-21, on the Schafer Theater stage, Information Technology Building, at MVCC’s Utica Campus. Admission is $5, $2 for MVCC employees, and free for MVCC students.
The production, directed by MVCC Associate Professor Paul Cruskie, will feature two one-act plays, “The Lesson” and “The New Tenant,” by Romanian-born French playwright Eugene Ionesco, who helped inaugurate the Theatre of the Absurd. In “The Lesson” (1951), an elderly professor and his young female student experience what must certainly be the most bizarre lesson in the history of pedagogy. “The New Tenant” (1955) is a play about a man overwhelmed by objects.
