Directed by Aaron Alpern and performed by MDC students, The Bald Soprano will be performed at MDC Kendall Campus over a two week period. Admission is free and open to the public. 

In the late 1940s, Eugne Ionesco's sense of humor was piqued by a primer he was using to learn English. The banality of the lessons' sample dialogue—the coldness of the expository communication between married couples, for example—inspired him to write his first play, 1950's The Bald Soprano, in which a veddy English couple entertains another veddy English couple in their veddy English home. At first, their conversations are merely stuffy and formal; then they become a hash of contradictions, non sequiturs and absurdly precipitous changes of mood. The middle-class English drawing room is recast as a formalist fun house in which language is unhinged from communication, and logic from reality.

Echoes of Ionesco's extended neo--Dadaist sketch have been heard since in everything from Monty Python to Steve Martin and beyond, and it retains a strong comic voice even today.”
