Hyde Park Community Players present: Rhinoceros
Hyde Park Community Players present Eugène Ionesco’s famous absurdist play Rhinoceros, which combines big laughs, big ideas, and big, big, big animals. In a small town on an ordinary Sunday, a rhinoceros goes charging by. Hilarity ensues, but the comedy gradually turns sinister as one by one the people transform into rhinoceroses. Will the comically unheroic protagonist, Berenger, reluctantly become the last best hope for humanity?
With a large cast, a multi-level shifting stage, original music by Jenne Lennon, and a full complement of romping rhinos, Rhinoceros is the HPCP’s most ambitious production to date. The play runs for one weekend only: June 1-3, at the Experimental Station, 6100 S. Blackstone Avenue, Chicago. Shows are at 8 pm Friday and Saturday nights, and 3 pm for the Sat & Sun matinees. Tickets are $12 at the door, or they can be purchased at a discounted $10 in advance. Advance tickets may be purchased: from a player; at 57th St. Books, at What The Traveler Saw, or online at hydeparkcommunityplayers.org For further information, contact: Laura MacGregor firstname.lastname@example.org 773/643-8018
