Additional Information:
A production of Théâtre de la Ville-Paris.
Directed by Emmanuel Demarcy-Mota

This compelling restaging and U.S. premiere of Ionesco’s Rhinoceros is performed by the same troupe that debuted it at Paris’ Théâtre de la Ville in 2004, where Emmanuel Demarcy-Mota was named director in 2008.

The story of protest and conformity is reflective of Ionesco’s personal and emotional reaction to the rise of Fascism and French collaboration with the Nazis. Rhinoceros is considered by many to be his finest work and revered as a gripping piece of the Theatre of the Absurd era of theatre history.

Performed in French with English subtitles.
