Rhinoceros

By EUGENE IONESCO | Adapted and Directed by FRANK GALATI

“A magical embrace between the show and the spectator.”  - Le Monde

A farce. A tragedy. A magical experiment for the mind. Brace yourself for this illuminating new adaptation by two-time Tony Award-winner Frank Galati. Berenger is a simple man with a simple life. He has a regular job, drinks too much, and has a flirtatious relationship with his coworker Daisy. But his day is interrupted by a rhinoceros charging through town – then another and another, until all of the townspeople transform into rhinos. As one of the few humans remaining, Berenger ponders the ramifications of literally following the herd. Written just after World War II, Rhinoceros was considered a masterpiece of absurdist theatre, where the world is incomprehensible and anything a writer can imagine can happen. Don’t miss this hilarious satire about mass culture, conformity, and integrity.
