Rhinoceros

Written by Eugene Ionesco

Translated by Derek Prouse

Adapted by Frank Galati

Directed by David Baecker

October 2 – 6, 2024

James L. Meader Little Theatre

The sublime is confused with the ridiculous in this savage commentary on the human condition. A small town is besieged as one roaring citizen becomes a rhinoceros and proceeds to trample on the social order. As more citizens transform, the trampling and noise is overwhelming, until one sane citizen remains, unwilling to change. The 1959 post-war classic in a new adaptation by Frank Galati.

Recommended for ages 13 and up.

With the help of a satyr and a daughter of Athena, Percy must journey across the United States to catch a thief who has stolen the original; weapon of mass destruction – Zeus’ master bolt.
