Inspirations: Eugène Ionesco

The concept behind Chatter was originally inspired by the Bald Primadonna, a play first performed in France in 1950. This is also known as the Bald Soprano and the original French title is la Cantatrice Chauve.

This play was written by Ionesco while he was learning English and was inspired by the trite conversational phrases that he saw in language text books. It is considered to be part of the theatre of the absurd. The characters make meaningless conversation without communicating with each other in a world that does not make sense.
