Written by Eugene Ionesco
Directed by Lindsay Rae Taylor
Ionesco’s influential 1950 “anti-play” is widely considered a masterpiece of The Theatre of the Absurd. Originally inspired by the random phrases the playwright encountered as he took a course to learn English, Ionesco’s hilarious script invites us to a disastrous dinner party in which proper men and women lose the power to communicate, leading to a total collapse of language itself.
