The Bald Soprano and the Lesson Summary

Award-winning playwright Tina Howe (Coastal Disturbances, Painting Churches, Pride's Crossing) breathes new life into these classics of absurdism with her wildly funny, vibrant new translations. Eugene Ionesco’s comic masterpiece, 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.
