Comedy, Experimental
Runs Feb 28Apr 06, 2019

A lyric comedy, this precursor to Dadaism juxtaposes text, incidental music and movement into a refreshingly surreal piece. The play follows the elderly and confused Baron Medusa, his daughter Frisette, her suitor Astolpho, and the Baron’s insubordinate valet Polycarpe as they navigate a series of amusing misunderstandings and aberrations – all while entertaining the presence of a dancing mechanical monkey named Jonas.
