Join us at our annual Alumni Theatre Night for a performance of Rhinoceros, by Eugene Ionesco, directed by Martha Ross and produced by the Waterloo Drama department.

Ionesco wrote Rhinoceros in 1959 as a critique of neo-Fascism that took hold in parts of Europe after WWII. This story is about the bourgeois inhabitants of a French town who one by one turn into rhinoceri until they become a mindless and savage herd, that is, all of the inhabitants except the ‘Everyman’ character of Berenger.

In the video below, director Martha Ross and play lead Alan Shonfield talk about this year’s play and explain why you should join us for the performance.
