Description In this great absurdist masterpiece of the 1950's, Ionesco reflects on the meaning and meaninglessness of life. With all the madness of a French farce, he prepares us for the revelation of the great secret, only to whip the rug out from under us at the last moment in a delicious, cruel and funny theatrical twist.
