In the 1962 play “Exit the King,” written by Eugene Ionesco, one of the leading playwrights of the Theater of the Absurd movement, literal reality becomes a matter of personal perception.
In June, Main Stage West, at 104 N Main St. in Sebastopol, is launching its own production of the play, which had a Tony Award winning Broadway revival in 2009.
For the local revival, director Elizabeth Craven has put together a cast of well-established local actors. including Fred Curchack, Laura Jorgensen, Keith Baker and Beth’s husband, John Craven.
The play opens June 14, and will be performed at 8 p.m. Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays, and 5 p.m. Sundays.
