Abstract

Trinity College Presents: RHINOCEROS, a classic absurdist comedy with a dark twist by French playwright Eugene Ionesco.

A small town is disturbed by the sudden appearances of rhinoceroses. As the residents try to figure out what is going on, slowly people begin turning into rhinoceroses! One citizen, Berenger, refuses to give into the group mentality, attempting to hold onto his individuality.

Over 40 students from Trinity College have worked for almost 3 months to create this hilarious and chilling rendition of Eugene Ionesco’s classic. ‘RHINOCEROS’ will perform at the University of Melbourne in the Guild Theatre at 7:30pm from Thursday the 20th of September to Saturday the 22nd of September. Please note this Theatre is wheelchair accessible.
