Running Time: 45 mins, no interval
The Lesson explores the bizarre relationship between the hot-headed teacher and his seemingly brilliant yet infuriating pupil, whom he coaches to her final exams with disastrous results…
Directed by Gary Sefton, director of Butterfly’s 2014 hit of A Christmas Carol and star of their production of Chekov’s The Bear, Butterfly are delighted to welcome Sefton back to collaborate on this brilliant piece of theatre.
The Lesson is a 45 minute performance; a rarely performed, very funny one-act, dark comedy from French absurdist writer Eugene Ionesco, translated to English by Donald Watson.
Bring your sandwiches with you as this is a perfect way to escape from the office and reclaim your lunch hour!
‘I would highly recommend going to Butterfly lunchtime theatre…exuberant and entertaining.’ Rhianna Lawson, What’s On Stage
