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.

Rhinoceros – Royal Lyceum Theatre, Edinburgh International Festival
Don’t miss Harry Ward in Rhinoceros at the Royal Lyceum Theatre from the 3rd – 12th August.
In a sleepy French provincial town, a rhinoceros rampages across the market square. Another crushes someone’s cat. A woman sounds the alarm: it is the townspeople themselves who are transforming into these raging beasts. As more and more of the citizens embrace their future as rhinos, just one man – the drunkard Bérenger – refuses to transform. But why does he feel so out of step with everyone else? And what will his refusal to conform cost him?CELTIC – The Musical
