Killing Game

Defunkt Theatre
February 3, 2005

Defunkt’s innate, vital immediacy carried well in small theatre space, but Ionesco’s long, monotonous orations, quasi-dialogues and dozens of deaths were delivered with only a few moments of thoughtfulness. Perhaps conveyed too real, too straight? More attention to pitch, pace and script-trimming may have helped relay the absurdity. Effective set.
