Live Theater Night: Rhinoceros

Let's sample some of the great live theater available in Providence. Brown's MFA program is renowned for their quality shows and annual performance series.

On deck this year is the surrealist play Rhinoceros by Eugene Ionesco, famous for its absurdist execution.

Over the course of three acts, the inhabitants of a small, provincial French town turn into rhinoceroses; ultimately the only human who does not succumb to this mass metamorphosis is the central character, Bérenger, a flustered everyman figure who is often criticized throughout the play for his drinking and tardiness. The play is often read as a response and criticism to the sudden upsurge of Communism, Fascism and Nazism during the events preceding World War II, and explores the themes of conformity, culture, mass movements, philosophy and morality.

    Unfortunate that there were three no-shows, but it was a fun event, and I look forward to the next one...

    Just a reminder, since the weather looks dreadful, I may have to cancel this event. I haven't made a decision yet. I'm not sure if I will be able to make it out and think it may be safer if others stayed off the roads too. If you would like to venture out, please note that you will be doing so at your own risk and in accordance with the group's liability waiver, which can be found here:

    Feel free to use this space to discuss.
