Rhinoceros: A Play Reading

February 21, 2017 @ 6:30 pm - 9:00 pm

Are you an aspiring thespian? An art & theater lover?  Just interested in reading a play aloud with others?  Then join us for a collaborative reading of Rhinoceros by Eugène Ionesco!

Roles will be assigned at the start of the program on a first come, first served basis.  We will read the entire play, as time allows, and no staging or props will be used.  No acting experience is required; just a willingness to read aloud!

About the play: “The sublime is confused with the ridiculous in this savage commentary on the human condition, a staple of every theatre classroom and 20th century drama. A small town is besieged by one roaring citizen who becomes a rhinoceros and proceeds to trample on the social order. As more citizens are transformed into rhinoceroses, the trampling becomes overwhelming, and more and more citizens become rhinoceroses. One sane man, Berenger remains, unable to change his form and identity.”
