French students from the University of Leeds invite you to enjoy a modern classic French play belonging to the genre of Theatre of the Absurd. 'La cantatrice chauve' by Eugène Ionesco is so atypical, yet funny that it has become one of the most performed plays in France. There are endless possible interpretations, but many believe that it expresses the futility of meaningful communication and relationships in modern society. Come and try to find your own interpretation of the trivial and absurd statements two couples make, and figure out who the Bald Soprano is – if there is one!
This play will be performed in French and will take place in Stylus, located in the students' union at the University of Leeds on the 13th and 14th of March at 7 pm. Tickets will be sold on the door and will cost £5, and £3.50 for students and concessions.
