I recently Stage-managed a performance of Ionesco' Rhinoceros, and watched a performance of The Bald Soprano, and really enjoyed them. Thus, sparking my interest in theatre of the absurd.

Samuel Beckett (his "Waiting for Godot" is probably the most famous play to date), Jean Genet, Arthur Adamov, and Harold Pinter, although these writers were not always comfortable with the label and sometimes preferred to use terms such as "Anti-Theater" or "New Theater". Other playwrights associated with this type of theater include Tom Stoppard, Arthur Kopit, Friedrich D眉rrenmatt, Fernando Arrabal, Edward Albee, N.F. Simpson, Boris Vian, Peter Weiss, Vaclav Havel, and Jean Tardieu. The French philosopher Albert Camus defines the human condition in his 1942 essay, The Myth of Sisyphus, as basically meaningless. Camus argued that humanity had to resign itself to recognizing that a fully satisfying rational explanation of the universe was beyond its reach; in that sense, the world must ultimately be seen as absurd.
