Eugéne Ionesco’s The New Tenant, which is one of the best leads of absurd theatre, directed by Laçin Ceylan, founder of BiTiyatro, criticizes the mentality of the consumer’s economy imposed by capitalism revealing absurdity of our lives in which our personal relations, human values and even our genuine feelings of love and affection have been razed by this imposingly consumptive economic system. Ionesco handles his characters, who ineptly try to have more and more, in his peculiar absurd style.
