Exit the king, the killer, and Macbett : three plays by Eugène Ionesco( Book )
3 editions published between 1985 and 1991 in English and held by 285 libraries worldwide
"Exit the King is a highly stylized, ritualized death rite unfolding the final hours of the once-great king Berenger the First. As he dies, his kingdom also dies. His armies suffer defeat, the young emigrate, the seasons change overnight, and his kingdom's borders shrink to the outline of his throne. At last, as the curtain falls, the king himself dissolves into a gray mist. The Killer is a study of pure evil. Bérenger, a conscientious citizen, finds himself in a radiantly beautiful city marred only by the presence of a killer. Bérenger's determination to find the murderer in the face of official indifference and his final defeat at the hands of an impersonal, pitiless cruelty speak with the universality of Kafka's The Trial."--Publisher's description
The burgomaster by Gert Hofmann( Book )
1 edition published in 1968 in English and held by 246 libraries worldwide
L'inquisitoire [roman by Robert Pinget( Book )
6 editions published between 1966 and 2003 in English and held by 242 libraries worldwide
"The Inquisitory consists entirely of the interrogation of an old, deaf servant regarding unspecified crimes that may or may not have taken place at his master's French chateau." "The servant's replies - which are by turns comic, straightforward, angry, nostalgic, and disingenuous - hint at a variety of seedy events, including murder, orgies, tax fraud, and drug deals. Of course, the servant wasn't involved with any of these activities - if the reader chooses to believe him. In trying to convince the inquisitor of his innocence, the servant creates a web of half-truths, vague references, and glaring inconsistencies amid "forgotten" details, indicating that he may know more than he's letting on."--Jacket

The bald soprano by Eugène Ionesco( visu )
6 editions published between 1999 and 2015 in English and held by 77 libraries worldwide
An operatic production of Ionesco's absurdist play. Since its 1950 debut in Paris, the play has been hailed as an "intensely amusing mixture of social satire, Alice in Wonderland-type logic, verbal delirium and surrealist farce." For the fiftieth anniversary of the founding work of this Theater of the Absurd, the Center for Contemporary Opera has adapted the play, featuring music by American composer Martin Kalmanoff and state-of-the-art video techniques
