Texas Lutheran University theatre presents Rhinoceros. Written in 1959, Ionesco’s play is a staple of the avant-garde theatre and political/existential philosophy that followed World War II, combining reality with the ridiculous in a fierce commentary on the human condition. With themes that remain relevant and timeless, Rhinoceros explores authoritarianism, conformity, mob mentality, morality, and the formation of human identity. Recently revived in London, in a production starring Benedict Cumberbatch as Berenger, Rhinoceros continues to be what the New York Times called "an allegory for our times."
