Often called the father of the Theater of the Absurd, Eugène Ionesco wrote groundbreaking plays that are simultaneously hilarious, tragic and profound. In The Bald Soprano, Ionesco throws together a cast of characters, including the quintessential British middle-class family, the Smiths, their guests, the Martins, their maid, Mary, and a fire chief determined to extinguish all fires — including their hearths. It’s an archetypical absurdist tale, and Ionesco displays his profound take on the problems inherent in modern communication.
