Arts & Events Programming presents "Rhinoceros"


On behalf of the Department of Humanities, Arts & Events Programming is pleased to present the annual, end-of-term, theatre production entitled Rhinoceros.

The production will run from March 14 – 17 and 21 – 24, 2012 at the fully accessible Leigha Lee Browne Theatre. The show begins at 8:00pm and doors will open at 7:30pm.

Written by playwright by Eugene Ionesco, translated by Martin Crimp, and directed by UTSC’s Amanda Lockitch, Rhinoceros features UTSC’s senior Theatre & Performance Studies Students.

The play is set in the streets of Toronto where rhinoceroses have taken over in an effort to bring the world back to its natural state. Berenger (Norie Nersisyan) notices that everyone around him is slowly transforming into rhinoceroses and giving in to the “call of the wild”, including his best friend Jean (Zachary McKendrick) and love interest, Daisy (Renee Thurairatnam). Berenger soon becomes the last man standing. Will he fight for humanity or follow the herd?   

Tickets are $12 for adults, $10 for students/seniors, and $8 each for groups of 10 or more. Tickets are available online at or at the door.
