Wellesley College Theatre will present the play Rhinoceros by Eugene Ionesco, translated by Derek Prouse, Nov. 15 to 18. The play, written in 1959, was inspired by the pre-World War II state of human existence, bringing into question the themes of conformity, culture, and morality. Wellesley College Theatre performs the play with a modern twist.
“Rhinoceros focuses on one main question: how can the human race avoid being destroyed by mass-conformity?” says Marta Rainer, director of the production.
Performances are scheduled for November 15, 16 and 17 at 7pm, and November 17 and 18 at 2pm at the Ruth Nagel Jones Theatre on the Wellesley College campus. General admission tickets are available for $15; seniors can receive tickets for $10, while admission is free for students from Wellesley, Babson, Olin, and MIT.
