A farce. A tragedy. A brilliant experiment for the mind. Brace yourself for an exhilarating experience staged by two-time Tony Award-winner Frank Galati. Berenger is a simple man with a simple life. He has a regular job, drinks too much, and has a flirtatious relationship with his coworker Daisy. But his day is interrupted by a rhinoceros charging through town – then another and another. Berenger begins to pobnder the ramifications of literally following the herd. Written just after World War II, Rhinoceros is considered a masterpiece of absurdist theatre, where the world is incomprehensible and anything a writer can imagine can happen. Don’t miss this hilarious satire about mass culture, conformity, and integrity.
