Absurd Drama is a subgenre of Drama that focuses on the absurdity of human existence. Absurdism in simple words means efforts of human beings to find the centre or in other words the meaning of his life and his failure in doing so due to the limits of humanity.

Absurd Drama was popularised by Alber Camus through his philosophy of absurdism. Camus belonged to the time of World Wars and hence he had seen mass killings of people that made him believe that there is no meaning of life and that every person gives his own meaning to it.

His work The Misunderstanding is one of the best examples of Absurd Drama.
