Open Preview See hacques Problem? The play shoots it’s wad early and then teeters on through images and chaos. There are no discussion topics on this book yet. We are thus visually prepared for a critique of capitalism and consumerism, but the direction never follows this up.

Elle rated it liked it Aug 17, This isn’t one of Ionesco’s best. Her constant posturing and mugging seems a shameless attempt to draw the focus away from others and on to herself.

Eric rated it really liked it Jun 09, This signalled that the concept of the production is severely flawed–not that Lessard has a clear concept in the first place. Brulotte gives Jacques both a goofiness that relates him to his family and the suppressed anger of an individual who knows he is being crushed.

When the can opens it reveals a room crammed full of enormous household appliances. Want to Read saving…. To play them as clown shows actually undercuts their humour. Mishka Tchelidze rated it it was amazing Oct 28, His idea seems to be to make all of the characters except Jacques and his bride Roberte in clownishly exaggerated character types. Owen Lucas rated it really liked it Jul 27, Thanks for telling us about the problem.

Refresh and try again. The beginning is rich and infuriating in the right way, but as the play moves on the fierceness is left to aimlessness.
