By Eugene Ionesco
Directed by Bill Gillett

Rhinoceros is a radical and absurd commentary on human nature. One-by-one, people are turning in rhinoceroses, and Berenger finds himself becoming the last human standing.  Written as a response to rising totalitarianism, Ionesco’s Rhinoceros continues to be an amazing and relevant work of dramatic literature that is equally ridiculous and eerie, serving as a warning against poisonous ideologies.  How do so many people get it so wrong?  HCC invites you to witness this new and modern translation of a theatrical masterwork.  The world is full of rhinoceroses!
