Classic absurdist comedy - contains sexual referencesl

Award-winning Dunedin theatre company Arcade presents Eugène Ionesco absurdist anti-play The Bald Soprano.

Join the Smiths and the Martins for a dinner party where nothing is quite what it seems. The clock is broken, no one can remember who anyone is and why exactly has the fire captain turned up anyway?

The Bald Soprano holds the world record for the longest continuous staging in the same theatre, having played at the Théâtre de la Huchette since 1957. Ionesco's classic “anti-play” is an assault upon convention and a celebration of chaos as the Smiths and Martin rally against the seemingly inevitable pointlessness of it all!

This is an amateur production of The Bald Soprano by special arrangement with Samuel French Inc. and New Zealand Play Bureau Ltd.

Arcade's 2019 season is supported in part by the Dunedin City Council's professional theatre fund.
