Suzan and Buzz talk with director Katherine Johnson, assistant director Elliott Puckette and actor Stephanie Drahozal about Strollers Theatre's production of Eugene Ionesco's Rhinoceros at the Bartell.
By Eugene Ionesco
Directed by Katherine Johnson
A rhinoceros rampages through the streets of a small town, shattering the peace. The intruder leaves behind a whirl of chaos and debate as the populace tries to make sense of an inconceivable event. As the dwindling humans are besieged by the growing tide of beasts, one man struggles with his position in this new reality as his fellows transform, infected by a burgeoning ideology.
Rhinoceros is a darkly comic reversal of norms. This incisive and finely crafted theatre of the absurd explores the brutal beauty of the natural. Savagery is simpler than empathy, and in this new world, forsaking humanity is noble.
Performances: November 3-18, 2017
