The Bald Soprano

This mad, crazy, wildly funny play is the comic masterpiece that launched the Theatre of the Absurd. It’s the story of an ordinary evening in the home of M. and Madame Smith that spins madly out of contol as they entertain their guests, the Martins. Dazzling in its linguistic acrobatics, the play is a comic masterpiece of joyful, irrational anti-logic and a looney parody of the stolid, thick-witted world of middleclass propriety. In an escalating battle of banalities, polite conversation turns to confusion, then mayhem, and finally explodes into cheerful, liberating chaos. Simultaneously comic and profound, it is a short, sharp ludicrous journey into a funhouse mirror version of the world we think we know—and the truth of what we do not.
