Rhinoceros, Rinoceronte

In Eugene Ionesco's 1959 play 'Rhinoceros' the residents of a small town sprout horns and transform into a grunting herd of thick-skinned pachyderms.

Right now the classic absurdist fable is being staged outdoors in three different locations, free of charge, at a park in Chelsea.

But that's not what makes this production of 'Rhinoceros' entirely unique.
