Originally an absurdist play by Eugene Ionesco, Rhinoceros tells the story of a French town plagued by rhinoceroses. These are not ordinary rhinoceroses, but people who have been victims of “rhinoceritis.” Or is it something else entirely? But, why are they turning into rhinoceroses and what is Ionesco trying to tell us about society?
