Description

Six actors. Twenty-four consecutive shows. No breaks. No kidding.

Eugene Ionesco’s THE BALD SOPRANO, a biting satire of British social conventions, finds the Smiths and Martins, the Maid and Fire Chief trapped in routines of mindless manners and non-stop non-communication. Written as a continuous loop, the ending begins the action all over again, having substituted the Martins for the Smiths and the Smiths for the Martins.

Brat Productions transforms the continuous-loop concept into a night-and-day come-and-go spectacle with A 24-Hour THE BALD SOPRANO at Plays & Players Theater (1714 Delancey Place, Philadelphia). Grab coffee and a pillow because once the action starts at 8pm on Friday, February 24 it won’t finish until 8pm on Saturday, February 25. Eugene Ionesco’s hour long absurd comedy is repeated every hour on the hour. Brat’s unique take on Ionesco’s classic tests the mental and physical fortitude of every performer in this spectacle of metaphysical nonsense, suburban banality and sleep deprivation.

Tickets are sold in two-hour blocks that guarantee admission to those two performances. A ticket also grants access to all other performances as space permits.
