“the lesson” written by eugene ionesco

Eugene Ionesco’s absurdist classic “The Lesson” is a one act comic-drama, at its darkest best.

A young student arrives to her first lesson with the Professor…
Who creates the rules, and why must we obey?
What shall we learn, and who should be taught?
Do not expect the mercy of the maid,
The Professor will have it his way-
Or no way at all.
Along with thirty nine others,
Will you be the 40th coffin?

“The lesson” embodies a pure drama that represents an exemplary action of universal nature.
A philosophy of a play is the realisim of our lives.
