When a rhinoceros suddenly appears stampeding through the streets of a peaceful small town, the stage is set for master playwright of Absurdism, Eugene Ioneseco’s most straightforward and popular allegorical comedy. More and more humans transform into rhinoceroses until what had been seen as strange and abnormal eventually becomes the standard of normal behavior. When the “last normal human being” in the town tries desperately to will himself to transform into a rhinoceros so he will not be alone, Ionesco’s masterpiece satire of conformity is complete.
