A peaceful Sunday morning in a provincial French café is shattered when a rhinoceros charges through the town square. Soon, more and more rhinoceros appear, and it becomes clear that people are turning into pachyderms. As the bizarre epidemic spreads, those still standing on two legs desperately debate who will succumb next and why. Smart, funny and brilliantly absurd, Ionesco’s most famous play explores individualism and the pull to run with the herd. Featuring Equity guests Marc Pouhé and David Stahl.
