In a house on an island a very old couple pass their time with private games and half-remembered stories. With brilliant eccentricity, Ionesco's tragic farce combines a comic portrait of human folly with a magical experiment in theatrical possibilities.

"As the world is incomprehensible to me, I am waiting for someone to explain it." - Eugène Ionesco
