In light of our nation’s current political climate, colleges and theaters across the country are staging readings and productions of Eugène Ionesco’s Rhinoceros, known as “The Rhinoceros Project.” Rhinoceros is the story of how the people of a small town turn into rhinoceroses. The play confronts themes of fascism, mob mentality, and paranoia. Skidmore English Professor Joseph Cermatori’s Drama 215 class will stage this reading with the intent of exploring how to cope and resist these themes. There will a discussion following the reading on the relevance of the play today.
Produced by Rebecca Rovezzi and Zoe Lesser
Directed by Michael San Roman
Dramaturgy by Megan Muratore
With the guidance of Professor Joseph Cermatori
