The Exterminating Angel
  • London Fringe

Guests are invited to an exclusive dinner after a night at the opera. Towards the end of the evening they find they are unable to leave. The door is open - but no one can get out, and no one can get in.

The elegant party quickly dissolves into anarchy. One guest dies. Two others kill themselves in a suicide pact. Finally, the dishevelled survivors discover that by re-enacting earlier events they can escape. There is celebration and relief - but it is short-lived, as soon they realize they are trapped again&

Based on the screenplay by Luis Buuel and Luis Alcoriza.

Sung in English with surtitles.
