C-SC to stage absurdist theatre production
Tuesday, February 09, 2010
CANTON, Mo. – The Culver-Stockton College Theatre Department is stepping outside of the box. The first production of the Spring 2010 semester will be Eugene Ionesco’s Rhinoceros, an absurdist show. “This is a totally different style than what we have done this season or the past two, for that matter,” said Haidee Heaton, C-SC associate professor of theatre and director of the production.
Rhinoceros is a play that speaks to the issues of conformity in life: social situations, academia, love, and friendships. It focuses on a small town that is besieged by a rhinoceros. The townspeople struggle to cope as they begin to turn into rhinoceroses themselves, until one townsperson remains and vows to fight against all of the rhinoceroses.
The play will be staged February 18, 19, and 20, at 7:30 p.m. and on February 21, at 3 p.m. in the Mabee Little Theatre located in the Robert W. Brown Performing Arts Center on the C-SC campus. Ticket prices are adults, $6 and non-Culver-Stockton students, $4.
