  Rhinoceros at A.C.T.


415 Geary St. San Francisco

In the opening moments of Eugene Ionesco's masterpiece of absurdist satire, a rhinoceros rampages through a village square. At the local cafe, people argue over what they saw. Was it really a rhino, or just fake news? As the eccentric villagers shed refined fa├žades 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? This outrageously comedic story of a civilized community shifting from defiance to compliance is chillingly resonant and riotously funny. From Tony Award-winning director Frank Galati comes an all-new adaptation of this wickedly entertaining show about power, conformism and mass culture. Don't miss Rhinoceros at San Francisco's American Conservatory Theater.
