SYNOPSIS: Berenger is a simple man with a simple life. He has a regular job, drinks too much, and has a flirtatious relationship with his coworker Daisy. But his day is interrupted by a rhinoceros charging through town – then another and another. Berenger begins to ponder the ramifications of literally following the herd. Written just after World War II, RHINOCEROS is still considered a masterpiece of absurdist theatre, where the world is incomprehensible and anything a writer can imagine can happen
