  • Overview
    The idea of the play came to Ionesco while he was trying to learn English with the Assimil method. He was impressed by the contents of the dialogues, often very sober and strange, so he decided to write an absurd play named L'anglais sans peine ("English without effort"). The current title was set only after a verbal slip-up made by one of the actors during the rehearsals - it is also known as 'The Bald Soprano'.
