UMBC’s Department of Theatre presents Rhinoceros by Eugene Ionesco in an adaptation by Martin Mooney, directed by Eve Muson. The citizens of a provincial French town gradually turn into rhinoceroses until they have become a faceless and savage herd. All of them that is, except for Bérenger, who refuses to relinquish his humanity. In this dark comic vision of civilization run amok, Ionesco depicts the struggle of the individual to maintain integrity and dignity alone in a world where all others have succumbed to the thrill of brute force and the mindlessness of the mob.
