Book Rhinoceros Tickets at the Royal Court Theatre, London

About Rhinoceros

When a rhinoceros charges across the town square one Sunday afternoon, Berenger thinks nothing of it. Soon, however, rhinoceroses are popping up everywhere and Berenger's whole world is under threat. What will it take for him to stand up to the increasing menace of rhinocerisation?

Ionesco's iconic satire on mindlessness and conformity is given its first major UK revival since its Royal Court premiere in 1960, which was directed by Orson Welles starring Laurence Olivier.

Rhinoceros, directed by Dominic Cooke, is performed in repertoire with Max Frisch's The Arsonists, which is directed by Royal Court Associate Director Ramin Gray, and features the same cast. Benedict Cumberbatch will play the lead role of Berenger.

"Utterly captivating." - Evening Standard

"Dominic Cooke's stunning production." - The Independent
