The Bald Soprano and Other Plays - The Lesson & Jack or The Submission & The Chairs
Published by Grove Press
The leading figure of absurdist theater and one of the great innovators of the modern stage, Eugène Ionesco (1909-94) did not write his first play - The Bald Soprano - until 1950
He went on to become an internationally renowned master of modern drama, famous for the comic proportions and bizarre effects that allow his work to be simultaneously hilarious, tragic, and profound
As Ionesco has said, "Theater is not literature . . . It is simply what cannot be expressed by any other means"
