Problems arise, however, when Veta herself is mistakenly assumed to be on the verge of lunacy when she explains to doctors that years of living with Elwood’s hallucination have caused her to see Harvey also!

Rhinoceros Auditions – 1477194
02-24-15 – Kansas City, MO>St Louis, MO – Written in three acts, Rhinoceros tells the hilarious and absurd tale of the inhabitants of a small town slowly turning into rhinoceroses. The protagonist and everyman figure, Berenger, meets his friend Jean for a drink when two rhinoceroses run across the town square. Did that just happen? Was it an Asian rhino, or Asiatic? If all cats die, and Socrates is dead, does that make him a cat? Irrational theories and thoughts begin to form, and logic does not seem to have the answers, especially when it becomes increasingly more apparent that the rhinos are, in fact, the townspeople who are transforming into the beasts themselves.
Ionesco’s work demonstrates how individual wills are easily manipulated by the collective, absorbing the thoughts and opinions of those around them. Written in 1959, it reflects the power and attractiveness of collective mentality and outlines how some mob mentalities often become more and more violent, and when not challenged, become quite dangerous.
Prepared monologues are suggested, but not required.
Everyone will have an opportunity to do cold readings from the script.
Scripts are on reserve at the SCC Library.
