Overview


Synopsis

The Bald Soprano is classic of the Theatre of the Absurd canon. A couple from London is visiting with another couple called the Martins. As they converse, they invite a fire chief and a maid to the discussion. Slowly, the world becomes more and more surreal: the wife begins acting like she just met her husband, the fire chief suddenly mentions a bald soprano, and, eventually, the discussion becomes more and more incomprehensible, comprised as it is entirely of non-sequitors.
