The Bald Soprano

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.
