What do you do when everyone around you is turning into a rhinoceros? Eugene Ionesco's iconic absurdist masterpiece follows a tragic everyman called 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 mindless conformity that still resonates today.

Still astonishing after more than 40 years... " - New York Times
