Les Chaises est tout simplement ma pièce préféré parmi celles de mon auteur préféré. Je crois que tout est dit. Si vous en avez l'occasion, allez la voir. C'est une pièce qu'il faut lire, mais c'est surtout je crois une pièce qu'il faut vivre.
Really enjoyed "Les Chaises". Absurd, yes, but it's sweet and melancoly and poetic. Plus I had the chance to see it coming alive because I saw the play just before reading the last 3 pages of the text.
L'Impromptu de l'Alma i found too obvious,even if it was funny sometimes. I had gotten the meaning long before the explanation.

Toujours à provoquer les rires, cette oeuvre est géniale! Et la finale une ironie des plus parfaites.
Totally absurd and awesome!

Eugène Ionesco, born Eugen Ionescu, was a Romanian and French playwright and dramatist; one of the foremost playwrights of the Theatre of the Absurd. Beyond ridiculing the most banal situations, Ionesco's plays depict in a tangible way the solitude and insignificance of human existence.

Excerpted from Wikipedia.
