The Bald Soprano

By Eugene Ionesco

Known in theatre history as the seminal absurdist anti-play, The Bald Soprano outlines the meaning of absurdism. Absurdists define the universe as irrational and meaningless and the search for order brings the individual into conflict with the universe. In the play, we find the main characters, the Smiths are a traditional couple from London who have invited another couple, the Martins, over for a visit. They are joined later by the Smiths' maid, Mary, and the local fire chief, who is also Mary's lover. The two families engage in meaningless banter, telling stories and relating nonsensical poems. The play devolves into a series of complete non-sequiturs with no resemblance to normal conversation.
