The Bald Soprano/The Dumb Waiter, two one-act plays performed in tandem, directed by Zachary Mannheimer.

In The Bald Soprano, Eugene Lonesco throws together a cast of characters including the quintessential British middle-class family the Smiths, their guests the Martins, their maid Mary, and a fire chief determined to extinguish all fires — including their hearths. It’s an archetypical absurdist tale and Lonesco displays his profound take on the problems inherent in modern communication.

In Harold Pinter’s The Dumb Waiter, one of Off-Broadway’s most successful entries, this mysterious and moody study in suspense concerns two professional killers who wait apprehensively in a grubby, windowless basement room for word of their next macabre assignment.
