Evergreen Players' Production of Rhinoceros

Directed by Dr. Natka Bianchini
McManus Theatre

The Evergreen Players production of Rhinoceros will explore  the themes of conformity and ideology as collective maladies. They are using a new translation, created for the Royal Court Theatre in London in 2007, and the talented team of designers is taking the play away from any realistic setting or time period  in order to make the production as relevant, as timely,and as modern as ever.   Ionesco's play touches on a wide range of complicated ethical and moral issues about what it means to be an individual and what it means to be a part of society as a whole.
