The Lesson @ the Wharf Theatre, Devizes

Icarus’ blistering, magical and award-winning production of Eugene Ionesco’s classic dark comedy returns to the stage, following sold out runs at Teatrul de Comedie in Bucharest, among others. A mild-mannered professor takes on a new pupil, and swiftly descends into tyranny, becoming bent on her destruction. A comically surreal exposé about power, knowledge & those who hoard both.

A dynamic projection design encapsulates the beating heart of Ionesco’s text and interweaves exciting new Creative Captioning technology to ensure that every performance is accessible for deaf and hard of hearing audiences.

From: October 1, 2022, till October 1, 2022. £10.00 – £14.00 HERE

Picnic at Hanging Rock @ The Wharf Theatre, Devizes

On St Valentine’s Day 1900 a group of schoolgirls from Appleyard College set out for a picnic at Hanging Rock, a volcanic beauty spot in rural Victoria, Australia. After lunch, a group of the girls climb into the blaze of the afternoon sun. Their idyllic day turns to nightmare as three of their number inexplicably vanish, never to be 
seen again. Five female narrators, performing all the parts, recount the mystery of the disappearance and the looming hysteria as the illusion of genteel society 
is torn apart. Tom Wright’s adaptation pares down the events and by using evocative & poetic language, creates an edgy and mysterious play.

Directed by Debby Wilkinson. From: October 31, 2022, till November 5, 2022, £10.00 – £14.00 HERE
