Theater of the Absurd (TOTA) takes the basis of existentialism and combines it with dramatic elements to create a style of theatre which cannot be logically explained. It accepts the absence of a guiding symmetry in the world. God doesn't exist, nor does any world order. Thus, our existence is reduced to a meaningless.
M an is not tragic or heroic; he is comic and pathetic. He is observed with both pity and humor by the audience. TOTA tries to express the senselessness of the human condition and the inadequacy of any rational approach to life. Unlike Modernist writers who pointed out, with awe and horror, life’s characteristics, the writers of TOTA don’t argue or comment on absurdity; they just present it.
