Rhinoceros
by Eugene Ionesco
Translated by Derek Prouse

William Inge Memorial Theatre

An absurd tale for an absurd world.

A man, a plan, and a rhinoceros epidemic. A satirical romp that offers insight on totalitarianism, human will, and the lure of nonsense. Ionesco’s masterpiece about the dangers of following the crowd will feature designs by Professor Mark Reaney, a pioneer in the use of computer graphics in theatre design.

Directed by Ric Averill
Scenic & Projection Design by Mark Reaney
Lighting & Tweet Design by Taylor Zimmerman
Costume Design by Robert Crone
Media Design by Abbey Lynn Smith
Stage Management by Emma Dodge
