A typical English evening in a typical English home with a pair of typical English couples turns out to be not so typical after all in Eugene Ionesco's The Bald Soprano. OYL produced the classic absurd play that breaks all the rules.

OYL rehearsed The Bald Soprano in Greece in the summer of 2008.  It was the first work created by OYL's newly formed ensemble of actors.

"... One Year Lease gives it an exceptional staging, thanks to their tight-knit ensemble work and...
such precise direction from Ianthe Demos..."

- Aaron Riccio,

"... The production is crisp and energetic, with the actors working together as a true ensemble..."
- Amy Freeman,
