By Eugéne Ionesco
Directed by Asa Nestlehutt (Fordham '24)
When a rhinoceros rampages through the streets of a small town its citizens are put to the test as they struggle to comprehend their situation. Though they at first disavow these creatures their condemnation turns to curiosity as one by one each of them succumbs to the allure of the beasts. And when all seems lost and one man remains to face the herd, we are left wondering is it too late? Rhinoceros explores the dangers of mob mentality, the pressures of conformity, and the bewildering nature of our humanity.
