Eugène Ionesco’s Rhinocéros is one of the major Absurdist plays of the 20th century. As compelling as ever, it warns against totalitarianism and the destructive power of the collective. Théâtre de la Ville’s production has wowed critics and audiences across France and the USA with its spectacular set and gripping performances.
