Rhinoceros – The Royal Lyceum

Eugène Ionesco’s classic 1959 play is an uproarious absurdist farce – and a chilling examination of conformism, nationalism, fascism and fundamentalism that has been compared with Orwell’s Animal Farm and Camus’s The Plague. It considers the countless ways in which humans are content to adapt themselves to new and horrifying circumstances, and give in to poisonous ideologies.

Alongside its piercing political insights, it is comic, thrillingly theatrical and deeply human, focusing on the unlikely hero of the everyman Berenger, and the possibility of resistance to what might seem inevitable.

Featuring BAA client Harry Ward  who will reprise his role with the Edinburgh International Festival and DOT Theatre Istanbul.

Opens on 23rd March and runs at the Lyceum until 7th April.
