Welcome to the weird, wonderful world of The Bald Soprano! young & W!LD proudly presents its bold reimagining of Eugene Ionesco’s classic comedy about the tragedy of language.
Over the course of one madcap evening, six characters meet. As they engage in conversation, sense and nonsense collide. Platitudes replace substance. And dialogue becomes drama. Soon enough, reality starts to break down as language loses all meaning.
From the madness and mayhem emerges Ionesco’s brilliant play, an insightful examination of contemporary society, polite conversation and social customs. Join young & W!LD for one last hair-raising adventure as they leap into the absurd with The Bald Soprano, where communication itself is the greatest barrier to understanding.
This programme is made possible by the generous support of Simone Lourey & William Randall.
