|The Bald Sporano & The Lesson
| Open: 05/10/07 Close: 05/20/07
In these two Eugene Ionesco one-act absurdist comedies, the only certainty is that those who don't learn from the past are condemned to repeat it time and again. In "The Bald Soprano," a typical British family (the Smiths), are getting ready for a traditional British dinner while doing traditional British things. However, soon all linear logic runs off the track as tenses, concepts and eventually even language become quite incomprehensible when this quiet evening with friends soon becomes anything but. In "The Lesson," a professor drills an eager female pupil in her studies, but soon becomes too obsessed with the task at hand for anyone's good; resulting in homicidal hilarity.
The production is an Equity Showcase.
