The Old Theater in Oriental and NBCT are looking for actors & dancers for:
Exit the King(Drama)
By Eugene Ionesco
Directed by Bill Hand
Exit the King is an absurdist exploration of ego and mortallity, set in the crumbling throne-room of the palace in an unnamed country. King Berenger the First has only the duration of the play to live. Once, it seemed he ruled over an immense empire and commanded great armies. But now his kingdom has shrunk to the confines of his garden wall. Refusing to accept his end, he is attended by his present and former Queens who must help him face the final inevitable thruth of his demise.
Exit the King was first produced in 1963, starring Alec Guinness, and successfully revived to great acclaim on Broadway in 2009.
