Running time: TBC

Typically middle-class Mr and Mrs Smith are enjoying an evening at home in the suburbs of London. They have invited the Martins over for dinner, even though they’ve already eaten, and the Martins are very late, which is very rude since the Smiths are starving and haven’t eaten all day. They are interrupted by their maid, Mary, and eventually, a fire chief.

One of the pioneer plays of the Theatre of the Absurd, The Bald Prima Donna is a surreal examination of the English middle class in the 1950s.
