Synopsis
 
When a rhinoceros charges across the town square one Sunday afternoon, Berenger thinks nothing of it. Soon, however, rhinoceroses are popping up everywhere and Berenger's whole world is under threat. What will it take for him to stand up to the increasing menace of rhinocerisation?

Eugène Ionesco's satire on conformity is given its first major UK revival since its Royal Court premiere in 1960, which was directed by Orson Welles starring Laurence Olivier. This production is from a new translation by Martin Crimp, and is directed by Dominic Cooke.

See also our feature here by Eleanor Margolies on Rhinoceros and the power of puppetry to enact animal and human behaviour.
