New Yiddish Rep presents the Yiddish world premiere of Eugene Ionesco's absurdist classic about a small French village whose inhabitants start transforming into rhinos. More…
The sublime is merged with the ridiculous in this savage commentary on the human condition as an individual citizen of a small town watches his friends turn into rhinoceroses one by one until he alone stands unchanged. Nearly 60 years since its debut, 'Rhinoceros' remains a startling allegory, as darkly comedic as it is terrifying. Performed in Yiddish with English supertitles.
