The Bald Soprano
by Eugene Ionesco
directed by Brydon Geisler '18


The New Voices / New Visions series continues with two innovative pieces of theatre led by talented young directors — a world-premiere comedy and an avant-garde masterpiece.

CONFORM is a coming-of-age comedy with a twist! Sam, a teenager with Tourette’s Syndrome, battles his way through high school with the help of his imagined superhero persona. This fast-paced, incisive play examines the nature of masculinity and ponders whether disabilities may sometimes be superpowers in disguise.

In THE BALD SOPRANO, what begins as a thoroughly mundane conversation between two couples devolves into a struggle to stay sane. Ionesco’s iconic 1950 masterpiece depicts a shifting reality, in which secrets are revealed and time is ultimately an illusion.
