The Brooklyn College Department of Theater Presents

Eugène Ionesco's "Rhinoceros"

April 24-29

Eugène Ionesco's "Rhinoceros"

Ionesco cir 1993 - Gorupdebesanez

In response to the playwright’s personal experience with the rise of fascism during World War II, Ionesco’s absurdist tale begins with a rhinoceros charging through a town where nothing really ever happens. The play is an indictment of the ease with which people succumb to herd mentality, and the ways in which hate spreads like a deadly virus, poisoning human nature and turning individuals into mindless beasts.

Eugène Ionesco was born in Romania and raised in France. In 1964, he was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature.

A MainStage Production directed by Laura Tesman
