The American Conservatory Theater production of Eugène Ionesco's Rhinoceros began performances in San Francisco May 29, for a run set to continue through June 23. The production, directed by Frank Galati, stars David Breitbarth, Matt DeCaro, Rona Figueroa, Trish Mulholland, Göran Norquist, Danny Scheie, Lauren Spencer, Teddy Spencer, and Jomar Tagatac.

According to production notes, "in the opening moments of Ionesco’s masterpiece of absurdist satire, a rhinoceros rampages through a village square. At the local café, people argue over what they saw. Was it really a rhino, or just fake news? As the eccentric villagers shed refined façades for hides and horns—smashing windows and crushing flowerbeds—rumpled everyman Berenger faces a desperate choice: take a stand against the armored brutes or join the mindless herd?"
