The playbill for Taylor University’s Fall 2010 performance of The Bald Soprano by Eugène Ionesco.
The Bald Soprano: An Anti-Play follows the events of a traditional couple who invite over another couple, and are later joined by their maid and the maid’s lover. The characters engage in meaningless banter that becomes even more nonsensical as time goes on.
In this adaptation the actors play the actresses’ roles and the actresses play the actor’s roles.
