About this show

It happens inexplicably: One by one, a man's friends and neighbors turn into rhinoceroses, reducing the town to a perilous wasteland. In this brilliant restaging of Eugène Ionesco's absurdist allegory Rhinoceros, loneliness and horror consume the individual who resists a popular movement in which civilians succumb to the collective in its most monstrous, destructive form. Spare, physical, and haunting, celebrated French director Emmanuel Demarcy--Mota's internationally acclaimed staging teases out the archetypal quality of this classic work, whose fierce indictment of 20th-century totalitarianism retains its sting amid today's ideological climate
