Rhinoceros by Eugène Ionesco

Mary Moody Northen Theatre presents Rhinoceros by Eugène Ionesco, translated by Martin Crimp and directed by MMNT artistic director David Long. Running September 28 - October 8, 2017.

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

Featuring guest artists Marc Pouhé and David Stahl.

“An allegory for our times.” – The New York Times
