The Bald Soprano
by Eugene Ionesco
March 9-14, 2004

The Department of Theatre presents The Bald Soprano by Eugene Ionesco and directed by Colette Searls. Join us for a night of absurdity at the Smith residence, where guests forget their own names and clocks refuse to tell time. This first of Ionesco’s celebrated absurdist plays wickedly satires the emptiness of life lived by habit. Shoe-tying reveals itself as a bizarre spectacle and showy doorbells ring by themselves as the Smiths and Martins trip through the horrors of disorder and nonsense.
