Rhinoceros

Rhinoceros

Be the one left standing, conformity is not an option. 

Ionesco’s celebrated absurdist satire transports us to a village where a rhinoceros crashes through the town on a rampage. As townspeople argue over the event, one by one they find themselves untamed and rambunctious—transformed into the very beasts they fear. Witness Tantrum Theater’s interpretation of this timeless, Tony Award-winning comedy that’s been revered as “provocative” and “moving” by the New York Post and we bet you’ll find yourself weighing the costs and benefits of fitting in with the herd.
