Bedlam Festival 2017 Presents: The Bald Soprano


Monday 23 January - Thursday 26 January 2017


Bedlam Theatre




Eugène Ionesco


Bedfest 2017


“An English evening. The English clock struck 17 English strokes.” Mr and Mrs Smith attempt to have a dinner party, and the charming English evening grows ever more menacing as language breaks down and madness takes over.

‘The Bald Soprano by Eugene Ionesco is one of the most important plays in the french absurdist tradition. Raising questions about language, class and everything in between, this family drama takes on new meaning in a world where language barriers are giving rise to prejudice and discrimination.’
