Sire, it's our duty to inform you that you are going to die.

Yes, well I know that. Everyone knows that. It's simply a matter of reminding me when the time comes.

Ionesco’s darkly hilarious play makes fun of all the things that tragedy usually takes seriously.
For 400 years King Berenger conquered his enemies, building a vast kingdom with millions of subjects. He even controlled the weather. But Father Time catches up with everyone. Now his kingdom is crumbling, his vast armies have gone, all that is left is less than a thousand elderly subjects. Even the palace washing machine has been pawned. Now his Royal Highness must bow to Father Time, but he is having none of it in this hilariously dark and witty comedy.
