By Eugène Ionesco; Translated by Derek Prouse; Directed by Srđa Vasiljević

Politics of the Absurd Staged Reading Series

February 5-7 @8pm

Tickets $35-$56


It starts with two rhinoceroses (or was it the same one twice?), rampaging through the quiet town square, a momentary disruption to daily life. Very soon there are more, grunting and snorting, running amok and destroying everything in their path. Berenger, a kindhearted drunkard, is determined to resist, even as more and more of the people around him succumb to the transformation – but what can one simple man do in the face of such a monstrous force?

Eugène Ionesco was a Romanian-French playwright and one of the foremost figures of the French Avant-garde theatre. He wrote Rhinoceros in 1958 as a response to totalitarian movements in Europe and was influenced by rise of fascism during his time living in Romania in the 1930’s.

A new staged reading series, Politics of the Absurd will feature concert-style performances of three classic absurdist comedies whose messages feel all too relevant in today’s modern political environment. Blue Caterpillar Productions
