“If we start thinking, people might follow our thoughts, and where would it all end?”
The Balcony is a high-class brothel where beautiful women help small men dress like figures of power and feel big...in more ways than one. When a revolution claims the lives of The Judge, The Bishop, The General and The Queen, the brothel's patrons are drafted to rule the country...with unexpected results. This rarely-produced classic has been banned and censored throughout its production history, but this often hilarious translation presents the play in a restored version that's absurd, raunchy and timelier than when it was written over 50 years ago.
