WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Tony-nominated playwright Tina Howe breathes new life into these classics of absurdism with her wildly funny, vibrant new translations of Ionesco's The Bald Soprano & The Lesson. Carl Forsman directs. The Bald Soprano celebrates the verbal mayhem that erupts when proper English people lose their ability to communicate. In The Lesson, a professor tries to teach his student the basics of arithmetic and philology, but things go terribly wrong as his pronouncements escalate into inspired gibberish. Added Performance: Sunday, 9/19 @7pm (Opening night) No Performance: Sunday, 9/19 @3pm
