Imagine you live in a small town that is besieged by one roaring citizen who becomes a rhinoceros, tramples on the social order, and the rest of the town follows suit. Could you maintain your human form and identity, or would you, too, be lured into the “beauty” of brute force and violence? When all members of your society are thinking the same way and behaving the same way, will you want to be part of the mob? Or will you stick to your individuality, despite being alone in your human form?  Eugène Ionesco’s absurdist play, RHINOCEROS, is a simple story that raises complex questions about the responsibility of the citizen when faced with radical thoughts.
