Mummers present – The Bald Soprano by Eugene Ionesco

Mummers, the student dramatic society bringing together students from St Paul’s College and The Womens College, invites students, parents, alumni and friends to the Semester 1 play on Thursday 7 (student night),  Saturday 9 and Sunday 10 June.

The play, an important example of the ‘theatre of the absurd’, consists mainly of a series of meaningless conversations between two couples that eventually deteriorate into babbling. First produced in 1950,  Ionesco described it as an ‘antiplay’.
