Eugene Ionesco's The Shepherd's Chameleon
Written By Eugene Ionesco | Directed By Moji Kareem | Composed by Theo Vidgen
Written by the man who turned the world of comedy upside down, Eugene Ionesco.
This is your chance to escape the drudgery of everyday austerity and embrace the madcap world of absurdist comedy.
In this fast-paced physical production, the playwright is the shepherd and the world of theatre a chameleon. Take a ringside seat and watch Ionesco take on his theatrical critics in a ridiculous battle of wits that you won’t want to miss.
‘A vicious circle can have its virtues too! So long as you get out of it on time!’
