Spinning Plates Co. returns to fortyfivedownstairs with a contemporary translation of RHINOCEROS by Zinnie Harris after Ionesco. This marks the second instalment in the company’s Beast Trilogy following 2023’s wildly successful production of THE CROCODILE.

One sunny day in a quaint provincial square, Berenger and Jean have arranged to meet at a café before the town is thrown into chaos when, one by one, its residents begin transforming into Rhinoceroses.

Ionesco’s absurdist cult classic locks horns with conformity and responsibility at the end of the world, brought stampeding into the twenty-first century by the acerbic pen of Zinnie Harris.

★★★★½ “Director Cassandra Fumi has drawn together an inspired harlequinade: every element of stagecraft merges with guillotine-sharp synergy… The actors are hilarious, and extremely skilled.” Cameron Woodhead, The Age (review of THE CROCODILE)
