Absurd, absurd!

Absurd, absurd!
12th-16th October at 20.00.
Studio Theatre, rue Waelhem 69a, 1030 Brussels

ETCetera’s next multilingual production after “Fin de Siècle” in 2009 is an evening of 3 plays dedicated to classic writers of the Absurd movement: unreal and real at the same time, and very funny.

Pic-Nic, by Fernando Arrabal in Spanish, is set in the First World War trenches; Victoria Station, by Harold Pinter in English, is about a London minicab “dispatcher” and his driver; while La Cantatrice Chauve, by Eugène Ionesco in French, is set in the English suburbs in the 1950’s.

Each will have “surtitles” in the other 2 languages.

The plays are directed by 3 of Brussels’ most experienced directors (see over), and include some very established actors such as Eduardo Aladro-Vico, Martin Whitworth, Christine Marchand, and Brian Holland.
