Hunger and Thirst (French original title La Soif et la faim) is one of the last plays by Eugène Ionesco.[1][2][3]

It was first published in French in 1966. The play has one act divided into four periods. In the play, Ionesco depicts religion as an expression of conformism and of the alienation of idealism to the establishment. It was first produced in an English translation in the United States in April, 1967, by the Yale University Dramatic Association.
