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.
