CSP Theatre and Dance presents Rhinoceros, Feb. 16-19 at the Westlund Black Box Theatre.

Ionesco’s classic absurdist play in which the inhabitants of a small, provincial French town find themselves turning into rhinoceroses! The only human who does not succumb is Bérenger, known for his drinking, tardiness, and slovenly lifestyle. Can he maintain his individuality when the whole world around him seems to be going mad? The play explores themes of conformity, mass movements, and mob mentality in a way that is darkly funny and entertaining.

Returning as Guest Director for Rhinoceros is Jon Ferguson founder and Artistic Director of Theatre Forever, specializing in collaboratively created new work and radical adaptations of classics. His work was last seen in Concordia’s 2015 production of Skyscrape: The Plebeian Scrolls.

Book by Eugene Ionesco.
