What do you do when everyone around you is turning into a rhinoceros? Eugene Ionesco’s iconic absurdist masterpiece follows an everyman Berenger who must navigate the confusion in his small French village as it is overrun by stampeding pachyderms. As bipeds become an ever-smaller minority, what will it take for him to stand up to the increasing menace of rhinocerisation? Written during the German occupation of Paris, this satirical comedy is a critique of the mindless conformity that still resonates today…

“Still astonishing after more than 40 years.” – The New York Times.
