​“Sometimes, one does harm without meaning to, or rather allows it to go unchecked”

One day, a rhinoceros stampedes through a French provincial town and crushes a woman’s cat. Initial outrage turns to lenience as anger turns to empathy and over the course of three acts, the townspeople unknowingly metamorphose into everything they once feared, until only one person is left in a town stricken with ‘rhinoceritis’.

Ionesco’s absurdist analysis of political extremism, mob-mentality and conformism continues to be fiercely relevant. The team who brought you last term's sell out, 'Julius Caesar', presents a startling tale with puppets, music and ensemble movement.
