THE BALD SOPRANO
Written by Eugene Ionesco
Directed by Lindsay Rae Taylor

Ionesco’s influential 1950 “anti-play” is widely considered a masterpiece of The Theatre of the Absurd.  Originally inspired by the random phrases the playwright encountered as he took a course to learn English, Ionesco’s hilarious script invites us to a disastrous dinner party in which proper men and women lose the power to communicate, leading to a total collapse of language, Ionesco’s hilarious script invites us to a disastrous dinner party in which proper men and women lose the power to communicate, leading to a total collapse of language itself. 

“…explosively, liberatingly funny … a loony parody with a climax which is an orgy of non-sequiturs.” – The Observer

Presented by Theatre South Carolina at the University of SC at Lab Theatre

Admission: $5 at the door
