The Bald Soprano

Do the limits of my language mean the limits of my world? The manifesto of the Theatre of the Absurd directed by Maciej Prus.

The Smiths, the Martins, the maid and the Fire Chief. They babble. Unable to express any thought or feeling, these characters embody the nonsense of everyday conversations and public speeches. Their language expands and fills up the cosmos, revealing its absurdity. A classic comedy of the 20th-century.
