Click 'Learn More' for a link to the recording on YouTube of a production of Rhinoceros played by the Baltimore Annex Theatre whose wording is very close to the contemporary translation of Ionesco's original that I've just received from Penguin/Amazon. Rhinoceros by Ionesco belongs to the school of drama known as the Theatre of the Absurd. The Absurd in these plays takes the form of human reaction to a meaningless world, or the individual being controlled by outside forces which are invisible and usually menacing.
Also, to amend my previous statement - it is actually very difficult to find a free copy of the play on the internet. It may be necessary to borrow or buy :-( a copy. YouTube does have a few performed recordings not necessarily the complete play, if anyone finds one they want to recommend, please give us a pointer.
