Exit the King  
City Garage Theatre Exit the King
 
A deluded king. A failing kingdom. Two squabbling queens vying for his attention. An obsequious doctor. A dim-witted but loyal guard and a mouthy servant. In Eugene Ionescos darkly comic masterpiece we witness the final hours of megalomaniac King Berenger the First. His monstrous ego has kept him alive for four centuries, but now, Queen Marguerite calmly informs him, the time has come to die. His kingdom begins to collapse around himthe seas rise, nature rebels, crops wither, the young flee, the old fail, foreign enemies close in. Berenger rages, pleads, denies, bargains, supported by the lovely and loyal Queen Marie. But Queen Marguerite, coolly efficient, aided by her smiling henchman, the doctor, draws the king relentlessly closer to his final moment on earth. At once broadly comic and deeply unsettling, the play alternates between Monty Python-style slapstick and haunting echoes of Shakespearean tragedy. In this, the most Beckett-like of all Ionescos work, we follow an existential journey into the most terrifying landscape of all: our own mortality. In a new translation by City Garage founders Frederique Michel and Charles Duncombe.

Getting away with murder can be so much fun ... and there's no better proof than the knock-'em-dead, uproarious, most-nominated show of the 2014 Broadway season, A Gentleman's Guide to Love and Murder. This Broadway hit tells the story of commoner Monty Navarro, who finds out he's heir to the family fortune and an earldom in the lofty D'Ysquith family. Well, he would be the heir, if not for the eight relatives who come before him in the line of succession. Monty is a man with an abundance of ambition and a lack of moral fiber, so he tries to jump forward in the line of succession by eliminating all of the relatives who stand in his way. If that's not enough, he also has to juggle a mistress and a fiancee. A Gentleman's Guide to Love and Murder​ is a murderous romp filled with unforgettable music, non-stop laughs and a scene-stealing role for one actor playing all eight of the doomed heirs who meet their ends in the most creative and side-splitting ways.
