February 9–18, 2023

Eugène Ionseco’s parabolic drama Rhinoceros (1959) follows everyman Bérenger as his community is overrun with “rhinoceritis.” As he watches the world change around him, Bérenger must find inspiration and take control of his life. Ionesco’s breakneck masterpiece is an indictment of complacency, extremism, and mob mentality, as well as an invitation to individual action in the face of overwhelming circumstances.

This production contains subject matter and depictions that may be offensive to some audience members. This content is explored in the excellent video interviews created by our dramaturgy team, which can be found on the Dramaturgy: Dig Deeper site. While anti-fascist and anti-racist sentiments were crucial to the inception of Rhinoceros, it is important to acknowledge the way in which the play articulates those themes for a presumed white European audience.
